The Jesuit Pedagogy
Sustaining the Ignatian vision and Jesuit mission of educational excellence in the formation of young men of competence, conscience and compassion requires the partnership of teachers and students, each striving to fulfill the pedagogy laid forth for all Jesuit schools.
The Ignatian Educator
Ignatian educators serve as guides for students as they continue on their formational journey. In collaboration with their colleagues, Ignatian educators engage in ongoing personal, professional and religious development in order to grow in their commitment to Jesuit education. The Jesuit Secondary Education Association (JSEA) identifies characteristics and practices which describe what it means to be an Ignatian educator in the Profile of an Ignatian Educator. With this document as its basis, Bellarmine drafted Ignatian Educators, Companions in Ministry which employs the standards put forth by the JSEA, as well as the California Standards for the Teaching Profession.
