We Teach

The Jesuits are renowned the world over for excellence in education. Almost from the start, Jesuits were teaching at universities in Europe. The first schools established by the Order were for the training of its own men. However, in 1548, St. Ignatius opened the first school for lay students in Messina at the urging of the municipality. By 1551, he was promoting the inauguration of colleges throughout Europe.

For information about middle schools, high schools, and universities in the Wisconsin Province, view a list of our ministries. Further information about these schools is available through the Jesuit Secondary Education Association and the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities.
