Welcome to Sjweb and to the 2009 Educational Institutions Directory
The Directory contains information on Jesuit educational institutions throughout the world. We have followed the practice of previous editions of the Directory and used a broad definition of the term "Jesuit." Thus, you will find listed not only Jesuit apostolic works, properly so called, but also institutions which share in the Ignatian spirit, draw upon a common heritage and foster the mission of the Society of Jesus, whatever be their juridical ties to the Society, their structure of governance or their ownership.
The Directory is arranged according to country. Under each country the institutions are classified according to four levels: higher (or tertiary) education, secondary education, primary education (including pre-primary education) and "other." The levels are further divided according to institutional type. On the level of higher education, you will find universities, university colleges, faculties, institutions of higher learning and university residences. On the level of secondary and primary education, you will find the nomenclature used in each country, e.g. colegios, high schools, colleges, collèges, escuelas, preparatory schools, elementary schools, professional schools, technical schools, etc. Under "others" you will find formation centers and special schools.
In addition to individual institutions, the Directory lists educational networks. Thus, you will find Fe y Alegria (Latin America), Red Chilena (Chile), Fundación Canaria Radio ECCA, Fundación Escuelas Profesionales de la Sagrada Familia y Fundación Loyola Andalucía-Canaria, Fundación Loyola-Andalucía (España), Dalit Centre, De Nobili, Gnanmata Sadan Society, Konar Village (India), Nativity Schools and Christo Rey Schools (United States). These networks are closely related to the Society and reach a vast number of students.
Although we have tried to present a comprehensive view of Jesuit education, we realize that we may have overlooked some valuable programs and activities. We know that some of the information presented may be inaccurate. Please inform us of any mistakes at the Secretariat's e-mail site: firstname.lastname@example.org . Likewise, the lines between the different levels of education are not always clear. In these cases we have used our best judgment. Finally, we have tried to respect the language proper to each country, except for an occasional use of English for practical reasons.
Please allow me to express once again my hope that the Educational Institutions Directory will increase our sense of the international character of the educational apostolate of the Society of Jesus and help us to support one another in our service of the Lord.
