The Power of Our Rambler Community

Parents and guardians are an integral part of the Loyola Academy community.   There are many opportunities where we invite you to share your talents and get involved in the life of the school beyond your student's classroom. 
Below is a sample of events the RPO traditionally holds each year. Please check the school calendar for confirmed 2023–24 events.

    Parents of upperclassmen will help welcome the new parents to Loyola, introduce new parents to each other to facilitate "breaking the ice," and learn about the many ways parents can get involved at Loyola.
  • Grandparent Mass & Reception

    Current students welcome their grandparents to Loyola to celebrate Mass followed by a reception in the West Gym.
