Loyola School


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 to both grow in personal worth and to serve others; where being your authentic self feels welcomed, not counter-cultural.


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


Since our founding in 1900 our Jesuit, independent community has been defined by our:


  • Academic Excellence: Our program prepares students for success in the most demanding universities by challenging every student to take ownership of their education.
  • Character Education: Cura personalis — care for the whole person — allows teachers and mentors to draw out each student’s unique gifts and talents, inspire their use, and encourage their growth.
  • Loving Community: Loyola students are deeply present in their own lives and the lives of each other, becoming more accepting and aware as they foster meaningful relationships.
  • Spiritual Development: Loyola students are given the tools, time and space to develop their values, examine the presence of God in their work, and put their faith into action.
  • Ignatian Service: Our students learn to recognize themselves as leaders of change, as they use their talents and passions in service for others and for the greater good.


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