Discover Loyola

Welcome to Loyola School, New York City’s premier Jesuit independent school.

Here, bright young women and men in grades 9-12 become leaders ready to go forth and set the world on fire.

Our school, at the corner of 83rd & Park, is a place where learning is still a loving, transformative process; where individual talents are used both to grow in personal worth and to serve others; where being your authentic self feels welcomed, not counter-cultural.

Loyola School is the only co-ed, Jesuit, and independent high school in New York City, and it captures the wonderful characteristics of both Jesuit and independent schools.  It is amazing to think that the first Jesuit school was founded in 1548 and today, almost 500 years later, there are close to 4000 Jesuit educational institutions around the globe, educating just over 2.5 million students…the strongest network of private education in the world.  It is truly remarkable that our wonderfully talented and dedicated faculty are able to shape our students through the Jesuit educational paradigm with an independent school faculty to student ratio of 8 to 1.  There is no other school that does the same.

Loyola School is both rooted in legacy and in creating well-rounded global citizens within an ever-shifting society.

By upholding Ignatian ideals while embracing ambitious change, Loyola School provides a safe and inspired learning environment for today’s independent student — one who is academically excellent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to doing justice.

Loyola School Mission

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.
