Just what is a Jesuit education?

You’ve probably heard the term “Jesuit education,” but what exactly does that mean? Will it make a difference? Yes, it will. A Jesuit education is not simply about reading from a textbook or researching information online. It’s about educating the whole person: YOU! In the tradition of Jesuit education, you’ll learn to think on a larger scale and be encouraged to ask questions and challenge perceptions. A Jesuit education isn’t just about completing a college degree – although that’s something you’ll certainly accomplish here. It’s about an education of mind, body and soul, and instilling a love of learning, spiritual growth, and commitment to service that you’ll take with you long after you graduate from Le Moyne College.
