I am pleased to announce our inaugural President’s Week celebration, which we have created to provide more opportunities for Loyola community members to connect with our school and one another. 

President’s Week has something for everyone —– 
from our elegant President’s Dinner to a host of other activities, including a showcase of art created and performed by Loyola students and alumni at a West Loop gallery, a lunch and panel discussion featuring Chicago sports leaders, a 5K run and a President’s Family Mass.

I hope you will join us for the festivities and camaraderie as we bring the Loyola community together for a week of faith, friendship, fine arts, recreational activities and more. I look forward to seeing you at the celebration!

In Christ,

Rev. Patrick E. McGrath, SJ
President, Loyola Academy
