The LA Way is a two-year long orientation program, which seeks to introduce students to Loyola Academy, Jesuit spirituality and help students develop their leadership. The goals of the LA Way are:

  1. To be intentional about caring for freshman.
  2. To provide Jesuit leadership training and learning experiences for freshmen.
  3. To provide freshmen students with a variety of trusted adults and upper-class mentors; to give upper class students a hands-on leadership role.
  4. To intentionally break common barriers and stereotypes that exist amongst students as they enter Loyola.
  5. To unify and align Loyola programming.
  6. To build unity and create an increasingly welcoming school culture.
The LA Way seeks to build community and to form leaders in the Jesuit, Catholic tradition.

From the moment students walk into Loyola, they are welcomed into the Loyola community.

The Four-Year Vision

The LA Way begins with freshman orientation and students continue to meet with their house
through their freshman year and quarterly in their sophomore year.
