Welcome! We are delighted you came to visit!

Formation in a Jesuit school refers to the process of learning and embracing Ignatian Spirituality. Common to Jesuits and Lay Collaborators, formation in Ignatian Identity gives language, meaning,  structure and purpose to our lives and the Mission of McQuaid Jesuit.

People recognize that McQuaid Jesuit possesses something attractive and compelling. Formation through Ignatian Identity and Campus Ministry ensures knowledge of and appreciation for the compelling gifts of Ignatian Spirituality and Jesuit Education.
