About our school

As a Catholic school in the Oblate religious tradition, lona College focuses on educating and empowering young men to dare to make a positive, spiritual and practical difference throughout their lives and the lives of others. Our curriculum provides a wide range of opportunities to cultivate the individual talents of each boy, including marine science and aerospace programs. lona College understands that the dreams and talents of each student are unique. Student learning is fostered in an environment that is challenging, engaging and supportive, and classroom activities are designed to be enjoyable, stimulating, and authentic. It is our hope that students not only experience a positive school culture and environment, but they are also taught how to enhance their personal wellbeing, deal with life’s challenges, live a life of meaning and purpose, strengthen their relationships with others and with God. In partnership with our families, we strive to produce men who enter our community to learn and leave to serve.
