Sixth Form Prospectus and Course Options
Notwithstanding the challenges brought about by Covid-19 it was decided that, as has always been the case for admission into Church Sixth Forms, the basic criterion of academic meritocracy should be respected once again this year. We understand that in adhering with the declared meritocratic criterion, no system is fairer than one based on standardised examination results. However, after lengthy discussions with a team of experts, we have come up with an entry system which is the fairest of any system that could have been adopted in these unprecedented circumstances.
Below you will find the documents explaining the full system and application process.

Eucharistic Youth Movement
The EYM is a youth movement based on Jesuit spirituality. The entire EYM journey is based upon four words: The Gospel, Eucharist, Community and Mission.
It is divided into several age groups to adapt the overall proposal to the different stages of life. For each age group there is a corresponding commitment of the Christian life.
The Spiritual Exercises, proposed at the end of the itinerary, represent a precious opportunity to take stock of the journey done and begin to plan, through the Word of God, one’s life.
At school we have the following sections
Young Stars – Prep 4-6. Co-Ordinator: Ms.Roberta Camilleri
Fire Friends – Form 1,2 – Co-Ordinator: Fr.Paul Zammit SJ
Journey Companions – Form 3-5 Co-Ordinator: Fr.Paul Zammit SJ
Team Builders – 6th Form Co-Ordinator: Br.Rob Rizzo SJ & Ms.Cristina Spiteri
EYM – Secondary School
About 80 students attend the weekly EYM meetings on Fridays after school. Ten lay and Jesuit leaders, together with a number of Sixth Form students conduct these meetings which are followed by sports-time.
Meetings centre on prayer, discussions, sharing and other activities inspired by the Gospel.
EYM at College is conducted in liaison with their Italian counterparts. As a matter of fact a group of Secondary School students attended the Italian meeting at Frascati, Italy this year.
Once a year EYM Day is celebrated at school.
Great enthusiasm accompanies these meetings.
Christian Life Communities
The Christian Life Community is an international lay movement of men and women, young and adult, from all walks of life, who desire to discover their calling in life and be Christian persons of service.
At St Aloysius College, students are invited to join a CLC group during Sixth Form.
Members gather regularly in small groups to support one another in living a way of life based on Gospel values. The small communities are organised into larger communities regionally and nationally, together forming the World Community.
From their journey as young adults, each member discovers the three pillars of CLC – Community, Spirituality and Mission (or ‘a call to serve’). The spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuit Order, is CLCs source and inspiration.
At present, in Malta and Gozo, there are some two hundred and forty CLC members who meet on a regular basis in about twenty four different communities, each with its own character and history.
