The Loyola ACE Foundation (FLOY) is a canonical foundation established by Fr. General of the Society of Jesus in 1998. It has a civil legal personality and its own NIF. His protectorate is held by Fr. General. The scope of action of the FLOY currently corresponds to the South Zone of Educsi: Andalusia, the Canary Islands and Extremadura for the development of its activities in 1998.
The Society of Jesus transferred to the Loyola Foundation the ownership and usufruct of the real estate, facilities and furniture of the following educational centers in Andalusia and the Canary Islands:
Inmaculado Corazón de María-Portaceli School of Sevilla
San Estanislao de Kostka School of Málaga
San Ignacio de Loyola School of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
From September 1, 2018, the PAL schools in Extremadura joined the Loyola Foundation:
San José School of Villafranca de los Barros (Badajoz)
The purpose of the Loyola Foundation is the integral formation of its students from the Ignatian spirituality in collaboration with the entire educational community.
It contributes to the mission of the Society of Jesus to announce and be a witness of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God, from the Church and in collaboration with others. The participation of all members of the educational community (incumbent entity, educators, students and families) is an essential factor in this mission.
The achievement of excellence, in addition to a good academic training, requires both the harmonious development of personal skills and attitudes as well as openness to interpersonal communication.
In this way we achieve that our students reach a serious ethical commitment with the environment and with their peers.
In this way, we aspire to form “the whole person”, also defined by Fr. Kolvenbach as one who is “competent, conscientious, compassionate and committed”.
Our vision is that our students become “men and women for others” as expressed by P. Arrupe SJ.
In all our educational activity the integrating principle of the inseparable link between faith and the promotion of the justice of the Kingdom is present. In this way, it is an express purpose to serve the most needy students – without excluding anyone – and to promote just relationships with Creation.
