The mission of Boston College is founded on the University’s Jesuit and Catholic heritage. Formative education is the hallmark of its liberal arts, faith-based approach, guiding young people toward lives of purpose and challenging them to work toward fulfillment and more ideal selves and societies. 

Built on the Catholic intellectual tradition, Boston College celebrates a 500-year history of Jesuit education. All are welcome and encouraged to engage in a process of learning, which seeks to educate the whole person: mind, body, and spirit.
