Principal's Welcome

Loyola College is a Catholic Regional Co-educational Secondary College in the Ignatian tradition, which opened in 1980 to serve the Catholic parishes of the north east in the Archdiocese of Melbourne.

Our College philosophy is based on the teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus, a religious order of priests and brothers more widely known as the Jesuits. Our College is a Jesuit Companion school and is a member of the worldwide network of Jesuit schools.

As a Catholic College we focus on the importance of belonging to the local and global communities and we strongly promote student involvement in Social Justice Projects and activities which promote the Ignatian philosophy of Christian service to others through action. Our College is outward looking and has a strong international focus.

In the Ignatian spirit we aim to educate the whole person. This is achieved through offering a broad curriculum which allows our students to pursue both academic and vocational pathways. At the same time we encourage our students to explore their many gifts and talents through our varied Co-Curriculum Program activities.

Parental involvement and engagement in the life of the College are strongly encouraged and are viewed as essential in the educational partnership established between families and the College.

As you peruse our website we hope you will come to appreciate what our College has to offer those young people entrusted to our care.

We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the Loyola College community in the near future.
