The happy anticipated day moves closer and closer when Loyola Jesuit Secondary School opens for enrolment of our first students!

On 07th September, 2015, we expect 144 young women and men to arrive on Campus in Kasungu to begin Form One (Grade Nine) studies. As a “grant-aided” school (Salaries of teachers are paid by the Government), we cooperate with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology to assure everything is in place to welcome these students.

The Ministry will assign 60% of the students, based on results of National Examination of Standard 8 graduates. The other 40% are chosen from those who have taken additional Examination administered by the Education Office of the Catholic Bishop Conference of Malawi. We look forward to a good mix of girls and boys from across Malawi.


Eager primary school students look anxiously at possibility of being among first LJSS students.

Head Teacher (Principal) Fr. Simon Makuru, S.S., has worked diligently to prepare curriculum and text books that will enable LJSS to get off to a good start. And Project Director, Fr. Alojs Podgrajsek, S.J., has seen that the classroom, hostels (dormitories) and kitchen/dining room facilities are all in place to welcome the students.

In Malawi, the young people attending secondary school have the promising name of “learners” Guided by the Vision and Mission of Loyola Jesuit Secondary School, our learners will enrol with us to learn not simply to make a living but to make a difference!


Our LJSS Vision is graduates who are persons of competence, commitment, conscience and compassion, who are aware of their responsibility to contribute to the transformation and development of the Malawian society according to Christian values.

Our LJSS Mission is to provide quality secondary education to girls and boys that embodied the characteristics of Jesuit education with special commitment to the less privileged and to character formation based on Christian values.
