The ‘Academy’ is the name used to refer to the activities of the Jesuits in Amsterdam. It includes courses, lectures, reading groups, often with an Ignatian signature.

Personal education


For people who would like to join the Roman Catholic Church, a yearly religious course is organized in the Krijtberg.
