    The correct option is "Jesuits".

    The Roman Catholic religious order of the Society of Jesus was founded by St Ignatius of Loyola. Jesuits are engaged in evangelisation and apostolic ministry in 112 nations on six continents. They are known in the fields of education (schools, colleges, universities, seminaries, theological faculties), intellectual research, and cultural pursuits in addition to missionary work

    The maxim "Give me the child till the age of seven and I will show you the man" is often attributed to the Jesuits as educators.
