  • Philosophy

    As a Jesuit, Catholic school, Loyola Academy forms women and men for others in service and leadership for the world in imitation of Jesus Christ. Loyola is committed to the full development of the whole person. Cura personalis, a Latin phrase meaning “care for the person,” is at the core of our Jesuit mission. Our curriculum thoughtfully and intentionally integrates the academic, spiritual, emotional and physical development of our students with the experience of service to others. Loyola students are not required to participate in school sponsored service activities; however, 1100+ students participate in voluntary service work per year.
Loyola Academy seeks to educate and form women and men for others. It is Loyola's obligation to prepare its students to live, work and serve others in a diverse society. To that end, members of the Loyola Academy community are expected to exhibit the highest moral standards and personal integrity while actively affirming the dignity of others. Harassment will not be tolerated as stated in the Student Handbook.
