Saint Ignatius' College Riverview... as much as you can do, so much dare to do
Saint Ignatius’ College, Riverview is a Catholic school for day boys and boarders from Years 5-12. It was established by the Jesuits at Lane Cove in Sydney in 1880 and is part of the international network of Jesuit schools.
At Riverview, our aim is to educate students so that they may become young men of competence, conscience and compassion, striving always for excellence in all they do.
Our motto, ‘Quantum Potes Tantum Aude’, As much as you can do, so much dare to do, reflects this central theme of Jesuit education.
Jesuit education exemplifies individual care and concern for each student. At Riverview, we have developed an academic program and pastoral care system which enable a boy to reach his full potential as a person of faith, created and loved by God. Both the academic curriculum and the co-curricular program are broad, intended to encourage boys to look for paths to maximise their own God-given talents. This is supported by an extensive Learning and Innovation support structure for academic learning, a comprehensive House and Mentor system for pastoral care, and a focus on community and service to others.
A defining difference with Riverview is the Bursary Program offered. Riverview does not offer scholarships for sporting or academic prowess but offers needs-based Bursaries, designed to assist in providing a Riverview education to boys and their families who would otherwise potentially be excluded. It is the core way that Riverview seeks to meet the Jesuit mission of not being a financially-gated community. In 2018 we have over 90 boys on financially – assisted Bursaries, representing a wide array of cultural, geographical and environmental backgrounds.
