McQuaid Jesuit provides a comprehensive and rigorous five year formation process to ensure our faculty, staff and administration are well prepared to carry forward our mission “to inspire young men to pursue excellence in all things, service to others and life-long justice.”
Since education is a relational enterprise, the formation program provides a context for understanding “why we do what we do” in Jesuit Education.
It establishes a comprehensive foundation of the historical, theological and missiological principles of Ignatian Spirituality and Pedagogy.
Ignatian formation is transformational. It is cumulative and progressive, rooted in theology (grace) and human experience (response to grace in gratitude).
It is supported by reflection upon the intersection of the two leading to deeper intimacy with God, becoming more fully human and contributing to God’s project for the world.
