Course Offerings by Department

List of 1 items.

  • Philosophy

    As a Jesuit, Catholic school, Loyola Academy forms women and men for others in service and leadership for the world in imitation of Jesus Christ. Loyola is committed to the full development of the whole person. Cura personalis, a Latin phrase meaning “care for the person,” is at the core of our Jesuit mission. Our curriculum thoughtfully and intentionally integrates the academic, spiritual, emotional and physical development of our students with the experience of service to others. Loyola students are not required to participate in school sponsored service activities; however, approximately 90% of the Class of 2015 participated in voluntary service work.
