Loyola School, uniquely Jesuit, independent, and coeducational, is a college preparatory learning community of excellence, with a global focus, that implements 21st-century educational practices and innovations, and develops well-rounded leaders of character in an Ignatian environment.
Global Education at Loyola School raises students’ awareness of the world outside their own environment, using the Grad at Grad characteristics as a framework for this global focus. The emphasis on making students academically excellent, open to growth, religious, loving, and committed to doing justice provides the launching pad for the exploration of the different and diverse cultures in our ever-broadening world community. Loyola implements 21st Century educational practices incorporating the arts, humanities, sciences, technology, and mathematics to develop well-rounded, compassionate Ignatian leaders with a global perspective.
Loyola School is an inclusive, respectful, and supportive learning environment, where diversity is seen as an asset. Through the development of students’ global competence, we prepare our graduates to be more empathetic, accepting of differences, and better prepared to navigate the interconnected world in which they will work and live. Global Learning is a part of daily life at Loyola, embedded in the curriculum, school-wide events, and the school’s very climate and culture.
