Competence

In the broader concept, competence in Jesuit education stands for academic excellence. Our students are taught in small classes by "teaching scholars" who bring their own real-life research into the classroom. Competence also includes skills that are developed outside the classroom that will help you be effective in your career, your community, and your personal life.
