About Us

President's Page


I AM PROUD TO SERVE as President of Loyola Academy. I am confident that the dream of St. Ignatius Loyola is alive and well in our community as we strive to form women and men for others in service to the Church and the world. We seek to be attentive to the invitation of God and ever more creative and generous in the ways that we respond. Our constant prayer is that our efforts might always be to the greater honor and glory of God.
