"One of the best ways to serve the present is to give hope for the future. Loyola Jesuit Secondary School will effectively serve the needs of the present youth who are the future of Malawi." Fr. Adolfo Nicolas, Superior General of the Society of Jesus
Malawi is a very poor country with great potential. While 75% of Malawians live below the poverty line, the country is peaceful and is blessed with many resources. The key to capitalizing on Malawi’s strengths is simple: educate the youth, particularly the poor. But Malawi’s education system is woefully inadequate, with only 35% of children receiving secondary education and only 44% of those reaching graduation.
The phrase “option for the poor” is central to Scripture, to our church social teaching and to our Jesuit mission documents. It indicates a preference of insight and commitment to those with minimal resources for full human development. It urges looking at the world from the perspective of the poor and working to improve the conditions that dehumanise our sisters and brothers.
The Jesuits bring a 450-year long tradition of educational excellence around the world to their formation and operation of Loyola Jesuit Secondary School. Jesuit education emphasizes high academic standards, concern for spiritual and personal growth, and the development of men and women for others.
