Our Heritage

➟ Inspired by a Supernatural Vision
The specific purpose of Aloysian education is the formation of boys and girls who will be good citizens of this world, enriching society and who will also be citizens of the world to come.

Our aim is to foster the growth of good human beings who come to have a regard to self, others and God. Because education in St. Aloysius is guided by a transcendental vision, every student and staff member in the college is expected to excel in what they do. Excellence is what is expected from all the stake-holders as they journey through life, offering their best and realizing their fullest potential.

➟ Founded on a Christian Anthropology
Every person is made in the image of God. St. Aloysius College therefore regards every human being as a person irrespective of one’s caste, class or gender with equal value.

The preferential admission policy in favour of the socio-economically marginalized is to provide those discriminated in society opportunities to take their rightful place in society. Students in the college will be educated in promotion of human rights, freedom of thought and expression and development of their personality through courses and programmes to help them to work for the cause of the downtrodden and fight for justice.

➟ Animated by Communion and Community
A third dimension of education in St. Aloysius is related to the community aspect, a dimension rooted both in the social nature of the human person.College is an educational community.

However it cannot exist in isolation. An important advance in education is the transition from the college as an institution to the college as a community. The teamwork or collaboration among all – teachers, students, parents and the public makes the college a community. At St. Aloysius special attention is paid to interpersonal relations. Teachers are expected to be mentors. They cannot forget that the students need guides while in college during the period of their growth. At the same time students are expected to get involved into the issues of society so that they become concerned and compassionate towards the less privileged.

➟ Imbued with a integral Worldview
Education in St. Aloysius is integral, an education which responds to all the needs of the whole human person. A college is a privileged place which fosters the formation of the whole person. An integral education aims to develop gradually every capability of every student: their intellectual, physical, psychological and moral dimensions. Through courses and programmes, in and outside the college, through participation in work camps and exposure activities students will be provided a holistic education.

➟ In Search for Wisdom and Truth
In an age of information overload, St. Aloysius will be attentive to the delicate balance between human experience and understanding.In the words of T.S. Eliot,we do not want our students to say: “We had the experience but missed the meaning.” On the other hand, knowledge and understanding are far more than the accumulation of information. Again T.S. Eliot puts it just right: “Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?” St Aloysius aspire to teach wisdom, habituating their students “to desire learning so much that he or she will delight in becoming a self-learner.”
