Inclusivity and Respect

The Salesian tradition is known for its welcoming and inclusive environment. We respect and celebrate the diversity of backgrounds, beliefs, and perspectives within our philosophy community.

Kindness and Compassion

Guided by the Salesian principle of loving kindness, we strive to create a compassionate and supportive atmosphere where students can explore philosophical ideas and engage in meaningful dialogue.

Born in 1815 in Becchi, Italy, Saint John Bosco, or Don Bosco, was a beacon of kindness, faith, and education. His mission began with the Oratory of Saint Francis de Sales in 1841, offering youth a loving and spiritual haven. In 1859, he founded the Salesian Society, embodying Saint Francis de Sales’ philosophy. Today, the Salesians continue Don Bosco’s legacy, impacting youth globally through education, kindness, and faith. His story is a testament to the enduring power of love and education.
