Based on a visit of almost two months to the Jesuit primary and secondary schools of Catalonia at the end of 2016, this text offers a critical-constructive analysis of their pedagogical innovations up to that moment. The text has 10 sections. The first six sections comprise an analysis of the innovation process from the general to the particular. The last four sections offer comprehensive reflections on the change process and propose key challenges for the renewal of Jesuit education in Catalonia and elsewhere: (a) more focus on educators and their professional growth; (b) going beyond methodological innovations by deepening on the educational vision and its curricular enactments; (c) recovering the Christian-humanist paradigm in the present cultural context; and (d) giving curricular and pedagogical attention to the diversity of social, cultural and religious contexts.
