To stay connected to the Loyola Academy faith-based community by participating in spiritual and intellectual programs, social events, and philanthropic and service opportunities.
The Golden Graduate Parents Network —a branch of our Graduate Parents Network — welcomes back graduate parents from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Reconnect with the Loyola community and reminisce and catch up with the friends you made and prayed with when your children attended Loyola Academy.
Loyola Academy provides learning opportunities for people at all times of their lives. These opportunities include:
Alumni Events: Cultivate Cura Personalis with and among alumni and graduate parents through spiritual formation, service, and professional and social networking—connecting our community members to Loyola as a Jesuit faith and education center for life.
Event Sponsorship Opportunities: Customized sponsorships are available for the President's Dinner and the Ramble. Proceeds from both events support Tuition Assistance, which in turn supports over 600+ Ramblers annually.
Loyola Academy provides many ways to stay connected with one another and meet other Loyola Academy parents. View the School Calendar for a current list of events but below are a few highlights:
