Located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Saint Ignatius Loyola School is committed to the education of the whole child by meeting the spiritual, intellectual, social, and emotional needs of each individual.
The spiritual philosophy of Saint Ignatius Loyola School is to acknowledge and affirm the presence of God and to make the Gospel message known and lived. Our goal is to instill the meaningful values of integrity, an awareness of social justice, and a commitment to continuing Jesus’ mission on earth through good works.
At Saint Ignatius Loyola School, a high priority is placed on intellectual advancement. Academically, it is our goal to create and maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning and to develop within the student a sensitivity and flexibility of mind and spirit. We encourage each child to reach his or her intellectual and social potential, and inspire all with the need to serve others.
Saint Ignatius Loyola School makes every effort to develop the social skills of our students. The reinforcement of respect, courtesy, and good manners is part of each school day. We encourage an attitude of mutual respect and acceptance of all.
The emotional self of the child is nurtured at Saint Ignatius Loyola School. We stress responsibility and self-awareness as important steps in this development. A sense of warmth and safety, dignity and self-esteem are the qualities that form the foundation and lead to the intrinsic good in the child.
