  • Important Notice Regarding Our Visitor ID System

    To enhance security on campus, our Visitor ID System, Raptor, was upgraded over the summer. In doing so, we no longer have access to information that was previously stored in the system. All visitors to Loyola Academy, including parents, will be required to provide a photo ID to be scanned upon entering the building during the school day, even if your ID was previously stored in our system. Therefore, when coming to campus, please allow extra time for this procedure. If possible, we recommend you stop by the Main Lobby (Door #1) or Piazza (Door #6)security desk at your earliest convenience to scan your ID—this will eliminate the need for you to do so in the future, especially before events when there is likely to be a line. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
  • Visitor Parking Permits

    All visitors are asked to obtain a Visitor's Parking Permit from the security desk in the main entrance or Piazza. You are invited to store the permit in your car to use on subsequent visits to Loyola Academy. We ask all Loyola students, faculty, staff and visitors to park in a legal parking spot in the lot whenever it is available. Those who choose to utilize Visitor Parking in the drop off/pick up lanes may not park before 8:30 a.m. and must move their vehicles by 2:30 p.m. at the latest. Security personnel in the main lobby can direct you where to park if you need assistance. If you are issued a ticket in error, please contact the Dean’s Office at 847.920.2707.
