Cura personalis, a Latin phrase that means “care for the person,” is one of the core imperatives of Jesuit education. In the spirit of cura personalis, we seek to design a learning environment that simultaneously supports and challenges our students. Cura personalis also impels us to increase access to a Jesuit education at Loyola for young people from every culture and community. To strengthen our tradition of cura personalis, we will:
deepen the formation of all adult members of the school community in our Ignatian spiritual and Jesuit traditions;
enhance our athletic and cocurricular programming and promote the participation of underengaged students;
develop a substance-abuse education, care and prevention program that will serve as a model for other schools;
maintain student admissions policies that foster geographic, socioeconomic, ethnic and racial diversity;
maintain fiscally responsible levels of financial aid that meet the needs of deserving students and families and create a culture of gratitude and generosity in which all students are formed to appreciate the gift that is Jesuit education;
provide necessary supports for minority students and foster the development of a welcoming and challenging school environment.
