  • Loyola School Athletic Department Philosophy

    The Loyola School Athletics Department’s mission is to commit to excellence in athletics, as it is directly associated with excellence within academics and faith. As a school rooted in Jesuit tradition, we position athletics as a platform for continued growth, intellectual fulfillment, religious centering, social integration, and physical rigor. Through deliberate and thorough research, meaningful coaching development, continuous school culture evaluation, and equitable investment in our student-athletes, our goal of collective improvement is the focus. To secure an educational and positive environment for our student-athletes, the Athletics program stresses teamwork, sportsmanship, and a climate of fair play and enjoyment. In keeping with the Ignatian spirit of cura personalis, the purposeful synthesis of academics, athletics, faith, and identity is what propels our program and community forward.

Loyola Athletics embraces the Jesuit values … in sports and in everything they do.

"At Loyola, our focus is to develop, secure, and support the best version of our student-athletes. Arriving to their best potential is possible due to the adaptation, curation, and establishment of culture that also aligns with our Jesuit mission. Our athletic program acknowledges and compliments our individual diversity and communal complexities which benefit our performance as stewards of change, impact, and leadership.”
- Maurice Hicks, Jr., Athletic Director
