It is Loyola Academy’s policy to promote and maintain a student body composed of young women and men with diverse educational, geographic, ethnic, racial and socioeconomic backgrounds. Loyola does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies, financial aid, athletic programs or other school programs.
Loyola Academy abides by all applicable policies of the Archdiocese of Chicago and the IHSA. In doing so, Loyola Academy does not promise or offer athletic scholarships of any kind. Violations of IHSA policies may result in loss of eligibility for the student, coach and/or school. In recognition of our shared ministry, Loyola Academy also does not promise, predict or otherwise allude to specific dollar amounts regarding tuition assistance or financial aid before a student takes the entrance exam. Loyola Academy promotes the best attributes of our own school while respecting the legacy and traditions of other Catholic high schools.
Admission to Loyola Academy is based on consideration of a combination of factors including, but not limited to entrance exam scores, grade school academic performance, involvement and relationship with the Academy, leadership and cocurricular activities.
Eighth grade students interested in applying to Loyola Academy for the 2019–20 year must take the entrance exam at Loyola Academy on December 1, 2018. Applications for admission are only distributed to students who test at Loyola Academy.
