Important updates regarding qualifying tests:
Whether the Algebra and Geometry qualifying tests take place at Loyola or online is still to be determined. Updates will be posted here closer to the test dates.
Please note: For the 2021–22 school year only, we will accept applications with a minimum standardized test score in math of 80% rather than 90%. Applicants will still need a teacher recommendation and must earn a qualifying score on the LAPTMS test.
Loyola Academy is offering a program for talented junior high math students. The Loyola Academy Program for Talented Math Students (LAPTMS) will seek to develop the talents of the area’s brightest math students by offering an accelerated math curriculum in which participants will have the opportunity to complete Advanced Placement Calculus and post-Calculus courses by the end of high school. The Loyola Program for Talented Math Students is based on a similar program that has been offered by Johns Hopkins University since 1979, and is currently offered by several other leading universities across the country (i.e.; Northwestern University and Duke University).
Loyola Academy’s Program for Talented Math Students is open to students entering at the Algebra 1 or Geometry level of math. Students may begin the program in 7th or 8th grade.
