A high quality Jesuit education can be yours

It is Loyola’s mission to promote and maintain a diverse student body, composed of young women and men from a wide range of cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our financial aid program is an important part of that mission, making our college preparatory education available to a more diverse student population than ever before. Financial aid is awarded to qualified students on the basis of financial need and is offered in the form of a grant. Financial aid awards are for one year and recipients must reapply annually.

  • Tuition Policy

    As a private school, Loyola Academy relies extensively on tuition to fund its operations. Consequently, it is essential that those responsible for paying a student’s tuition do so on a timely basis in accordance with their selected tuition payment plan.

    If, after selecting a payment plan, a parent or guardian encounters unanticipated financial difficulty, it is the parent’s or guardian’s responsibility to notify the Business Office as soon as possible to discuss an alternative payment plan.
