Loyola School was founded by the Society of Jesus in 1900 to provide an educational program and environment, which, at that time, was only available in private, non-Catholic college preparatory schools. Loyola’s mission was, and is, to provide an independent school education in the Ignatian tradition for those who value and are prepared to support this type of educational environment. As such, Loyola values a coeducational and a diverse student body, fostering this through its scholarship and financial assistance programs and its nondiscriminatory policy: Loyola School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, or religion to the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, or religion in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school administered programs. 

Mission Statement

As a Catholic, independent, coeducational, college preparatory, urban, secondary, day school, rooted in the Jesuit tradition, Loyola School challenges its young men and women to become intellectually fulfilled, open to growth, religious, loving, and committed to doing justice. Loyola School is committed to challenging its students religiously, intellectually, aesthetically, physically, and socially. Opportunities for personal study, reflection, and leadership allow students to expand their knowledge, develop their skills, mature as individuals and community members, and realize the goodness inherent in themselves and all God's creation. In keeping with the Ignatian spirit of cura personalis (care for the whole person), Loyola School strives to develop the diverse and unique talents of each member of the Loyola community, and encourages the use of these talents to serve others for the greater glory of God.
