Greetings from The Director of Admissions

September 2020

Dear Prospective Parents,

Thank you for your interest in Saint Ignatius Loyola School, a Kindergarten through Eighth Grade 2011 and 2018 Blue Ribbon School within the Archdiocese of New York.  Since its founding in 1854, Saint Ignatius Loyola School has been an academically challenging and supportive learning environment rooted in Catholic faith and tradition and a school that places the needs of the whole child at the highest priority.

After six long months, we are thrilled and blessed to be back together in the school building and to hear the joyous voices of the children ready to learn and grow under the constant and loving guidance of the administration, faculty and staff.  It is indeed good to be back!  We hope to share this spirit with you this fall as you get to know our school community through the admissions process for the 2021-2022 school year.

Of course, this year will look a little different because of our new reality requiring physical distancing and restricted access to the building.  Our number one priority continues to be maintaining a healthy school community of over 500 students and 50 administrators, faculty and staff and a safe and clean school environment.  This year, the admissions process starts with a Zoom Admissions Information Session hosted by Ms. Mary Larkin, Head of School, Ms. Rosalie Savarese, Assistant Head of School, and myself. It ends with a personalized, thorough and thoughtful review of your child as a young learner, both academically and socially.

Each year, Saint Ignatius Loyola School seeks to enroll qualified students of all faiths for admission into our Kindergarten through Seventh Grade based upon teacher recommendations, school records, and an assessment based on the Common Core Learning Standards in reading, writing and math. This assessment may be administered in person or through Zoom in January 2021.  We are closely monitoring the situation around COVID-19 and may provide updates to the assessment as we get closer.

Please feel free to explore the admissions section of the school's website and contact me with any questions.

Thank you again for your interest in Saint Ignatius Loyola School.  I look forward to seeing you on one of the Zoom Admissions Information Sessions!
