A Jesuit College Preparatory Experience
About Us

School Culture

At Loyola Academy, we believe each student is to be known, to be loved and supported to reach their God-given potential. To that end, Loyola Academy is committed to developing a diverse, equitable and inclusive school culture.

As Ramblers we seek to animate the inclusivity that is an essential component of our Jesuit, Catholic tradition. The Creator made a beautifully diverse world and Jesus calls us to walk with those at the margins of society. Therefore, the Loyola Community strives to be builders of the Kingdom of God through equitable practices in and out of the building.
