Gonzaga College was founded in 1950 as a day school for boys under the direction of the Society of Jesus. At present there are five hundred and twenty boys on the Gonzaga College rolls.
The objectives of Gonzaga include the formation of young adults who will be capable of living in and contributing to the community to which they belong; who will have ideals of excellence in all aspects of their lives – spiritual, moral, intellectual; who will be inspired by faith and imbued with the determination to build an ever more just society.
In so far as is possible, pupils in Gonzaga are helped to integrate into their lives a deep and mature faith, founded on a solid knowledge of Christian teaching; to grow in judgement and sensibility, aesthetic sense, self-expression, a sense of community and of civil and social duty; and in depth of understanding.
Parents who send their children to Gonzaga share these ideals. They know, as does the school, that the fostering of growth towards them demands a common approach which underlines all educational effort. They know too, as does the school, that the ultimate success of all their efforts depends on God’s grace and that the fulfillment of all education is found in His love.
In Jesuit education the criterion of excellence is applied to all areas of school life and therefore our mission is the fullest possible development of every dimension of the person.
In particular, we seek to foster a sense of values and a commitment to the service of others. Thus we pledge ourselves to an ever renewed faith which actively promotes the struggle for greater justice in the world
