Objectives of Jesuit education
Inspired by the life of Jesus and eager to spread the Gospel values through unconditional love and service to all people, the needy in particular, St Ignatius of Loyola founded the Society of Jesus. This vision of the founder gives Jesuit education at North Point a specific character. It sets before the North Point family (its staff, students, parents and alumni) the need to promote the total development of the individual by striving for excellence at the level of one's potential.

Every graduate of North Point is to become an agent of change respecting all cultures, languages and religions and above all recognizing the unique image and likeness of the Creator in every individual. His task is to love and serve his neighbour at all times by upholding the dignity of all and in particular the needy. By committing himself to the service of faith and promotion of justice, he is to lift up his heart, live and work for a just society where every individual will be fully alive, living an upright and humane life.

JESUIT: The Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits, serves the Roman Catholic Church for the greater glory of god. More than 16,000 Jesuits can be found throughout the world forming men and women to love and serve others. There are four Jesuits currently serving at North Point with many lay people dedicated to achieve “MAGIS’.
