image by Ivan Sache, 25 September 2014

Liceo San Luis, located in Yarumal (Antioquia Department), originates in a school established in 1899 by the notables of the town in the building housing today Escuela Rosenda Torres. The establishment of a new school, to be named Instituto San Ignacio de Loyola, was approved on 7 July 1905 by the Government of Colombia. In 1910, Juan Arroyave, the parish priest, asked to the Superior of the French Christian Brothers (Lasallian Brothers) to manage the school; Friars Benoit Hildegrin, Emile Cervin, Daniel Paulino, and Joaquin Adolfa took the direction of the school on 21 January 1911.
Following a dispute that had started in 1954 with the parish priest, Efraín Jiménez Trujillo, regarding ownership of the school's building, the Lasallian were ordered in 1963 by their Superior to withdraw from Yarumal. The school was transferred to the Antioquia Department and renamed Liceo San Luis. In 1969, the institute was open to girls and took over Instituto Pio XII. The institute is named for St. Aloysius Gonzaga (1568-1591; canonized on 31 December 1726 by Pope Benedict XIII), an aristocrat who studied with the Society of Jesus and died during an epidemic of plague.
