At the heart of everything we do at St. Joseph's Prep lies our Catholic faith and our Jesuit tradition.

By “Jesuit," we mean that the Prep has its founding vision in the person and spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, who saw education as an end in itself believing that one can “seek God in all things.”

Ignatius also saw education as a preferred means to the end of “helping souls.” His book of Spiritual Exercises offers principles that shape a "Jesuit style” of education characterized by  experience, reflection, action and evaluation. (The Ignatian Pedagogy – A Practical Approach, 1993)

Our Jesuit Mission comes alive through the work of the Mission & Ministry Team at St. Joseph's Prep.
