A Message from the Head of School


Welcome to Saint Ignatius Loyola School!


In keeping with our legacy of academic excellence and spiritual joy, the faculty and staff of Saint Ignatius Loyola School are dedicated to the education of the whole child. By imparting the meaningful values of diligence, integrity, compassion and an awareness of social justice, our students' spiritual, intellectual, social and emotional needs are given the opportunity to flourish. While maintaining an environment conducive to learning, students develop a sensitivity and flexibility of mind and spirit, and are encouraged to reach their intellectual and social potential.


Our dedicated teachers inspire the students from PreK3 through the Eighth Grade with challenging curriculum that includes English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Religious Studies, art, music, technology, physical education and Latin. We recognize the integral role parents have as the primary educators, and work with each family to create the best learning experience for their child.


Saint Ignatius Loyola School is truly a place for students and families who wish to accomplish more in a nurturing environment. Our school has been recognized two times by the U.S. Department of Education, in 2011 and 2018, as a National Blue Ribbon School.  We hope you will take some time to visit our website to get a sense of our curriculum, student life, and school community.
