Saint Ignatius College is a Catholic community in the Ignatian tradition that is learning-centred and supportive.
The College is committed to the education of the whole person and the development of young adults of competence, conscience and compassion who will be of service in the community.
We strive to recognise God’s presence in all things, to celebrate the pursuit of personal excellence and to live with hope and respect for all creation.
Ignatius in his writings calls us to strive for the 'Magis' - 'the more'. The more is a key to making choices among competing values. The entire life of Ignatius Loyola was a search for the Magis – that is, the more universal good, the more effective means, the more generous service of others, and the ever greater glory of God. Magis energises us for action.
Saint Ignatius College Geelong supports and promotes the principles and practice of Australian democracy.
The College abides by the The Education and Training Reform Act 2006, and deliver our programs and teaching in a manner that supports and promotes the principals and practice of Australian democracy.

Saint Ignatius College Geelong is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS).
MACS governs and operates 292 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them.
Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders.
This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures.
More information on MACS is available at www.macs.vic.edu.au.
