Loyola Academy’s Bowman Scholars Program was established in 2020 to provide programming and assistance for high achieving, first-generation students. Every Bowman Scholar is given the opportunity to thrive and participate fully in the Rambler experience, equipped with the knowledge and skills to achieve college readiness, acceptance and success.
The Bowman Scholars Program also aims to address inequities within the Loyola Academy experience. The academic and social rigors of school can be challenging for many students but particularly impact our under-resourced students who may not have access to nor knowledge of the support available to help them reach their full potential as Ramblers. While the purpose of the Bowman Scholars Program is to develop a healthy, fulfilled and college-bound Rambler, the program dually addresses the systemic obstacles under-resourced students face.
