This year’s Spirit Week theme, “Rambler Disco,” set the tone for a week of dress-down days with fun themes: “Disco Ball Day” on Monday, “Neon or Tie Dye Day Day” on Tuesday, “Tacky Tourist Day” on Wednesday, “Zoom Business Day” on Thursday, and “Rambler Spirit Deck-Out Day” to close out the week on Friday. Inflatable obstacle courses on the football field, Just Dance in the new theater, Karaoke outside of the McGrath Family Performing Arts Center, and a photo booth were just some of the activities hosted by the Student Activities to energize students throughout the week.

Loyola Academy Partners with Special Gifts Theatre to Create Student Mentor Program
Loyola Academy is pleased to announce a newly formed partnership with Special Gifts Theatre (SGT), a not-for-profit organization that was founded in 2000 to provide individuals who possess a wide array of special needs (physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and learning) the opportunity to experience the joy and enrichment that theatre arts can bring. Launched in September 2022, the SGT x LA Peer Mentor Program gives Ramblers the opportunity to work one-on-one with a Special Gifts Theatre buddy in our beautiful new McGrath Family Performing Arts Center.
In September, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation named two Loyola Academy seniors semifinalists in the 68th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Congratulations to Chloe C.

Despite scattered rain and unseasonably cool temps that finally warmed in the late afternoon, it was a wonderful day on the links at North Shore Country Club in Glenview as alumni, parents and friends of Loyola Academy gathered for the 28th annual Ramblers Golf Outing on Monday, September 12.
