“School is an educational environment in which one grows in order to learn to live: to become adult and mature men and women capable of walking the path of life. How does school help you grow? It helps you to not only develop your intelligence, but also to achieve an integral formation of all aspects of your personality”. Speech by Pope Francis to Students of Jesuit Schools in Italy and Albania, Rome, 7-6-2013.
Here are all the components of the personality of the Integer Homo embodied by the educational ideal of the Regnum Christi schools: intellect, will, emotion, body, relationality and spirituality.
- We want to form truth seekers
We want to develop students’ cognitive abilities and help them create habits that will make them intellectually curious. Through the “pastoral of intelligence” we seek to broaden the horizons of reason to make students passionate about research and knowledge, to strengthen their ability to see and understand the world and humanity from within, and to turn their learning into a personal search for truth.
- We want to form mature individuals
We want to make our students mature individuals, in accordance with their age. This maturity is manifested by loyalty to one’s own responsibilities, the ability to know how to interpret one’s feelings and orient them towards the person’s integral good, an attitude of openness to others and to God, the ability to form sound judgements about life events and people, and the ability to make wise decisions. This requires the formation of conscience by providing moral criteria in accordance with right reason and the Gospel, and the formation of character through the cultivation of human virtues.
- We want to form Christians
The ultimate goal of spiritual formation is to make each student experience a relationship of intimacy with Jesus Christ. Spiritual formation does not only occur in the chapel, or in religion class, but rather during every minute that a student is at school. We live faith with joy.
- We want to form apostles
We are committed to ensuring that students know and live the love of Jesus Christ and to enabling them to communicate that love to the world.
