Parents' online guide to magis

Magis: ‘mah-gis’: It’s a Jesuit principle that underlies everything we do at Saint Joseph’s. Roughly translated, it means “more”. Magis inspires us to think a little broader, work a little harder and accomplish the kinds of things we never dreamed possible. More simply put, magis calls us to live greater.
