Summer School

2020 Summer School

Loyola Academy Summer School offers some of our finest classes for enrichment or remedial purposes. Our program is one of the Academy’s traditions of excellence and includes courses taught by many of our finest teachers.

Summer School runs from Monday, June 15, to Friday, July 24, 2020. Full-credit and half-credit courses run six weeks. Enrichment courses do not receive credit and run for three weeks. Explore Chicago! runs for one week. Classes meet  five days each week. Class size is limited to a maximum of 25 students and therefore some classes may close prior to the registration deadline. A course may also be cancelled due to lack of enrollment.
