Inspired by the values of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the Society of Jesus, the Loyola Schools embodies the tradition of excellence and service that Ateneo de Manila University upholds.

Through the Schools’ academic programs, scholarly undertakings, and extension work, this tradition continues to flourish, especially as understood in the context of nation-building from a uniquely Filipino and Asian perspective, global competitiveness, and transformative leadership.

Vision and Mission

We are a Filipino, Catholic and Jesuit University that provides a world class, excellent holistic liberal education, multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary in approach.

We form leaders equipped to manage complexity, conflict and change. They are trained to respond with a global perspective and at the same time are rooted in, and culturally sensitive to, diverse local needs and realities. Animated by Ignatian spirituality, they live a life shaped by discernment, learning and action.

We participate with passion in the task of nation building through our teaching, research, outreach, and advocacy. We strive to have a strong impact on national and regional issues by tackling urgent societal problems, promoting cultural dialogue and addressing social inequity.

Through the institutions that we build, the policies and programs that we craft, and the governance that we practice and advocate, we endeavor to build a national and regional presence and reputation for leadership, excellence, and service.
