Eighteen Jesuit high schools, including Loyola School, from nine states and the District of Columbia have announced the launch of the seventh annual Great Ignatian Challenge, an annual holiday food drive competition intended to raise students’ awareness of hunger and inspire them to take action by working to fill their local food banks, pantries, and community centers with tens of thousands of pounds of much-needed provisions. This friendly, but spirited, competition will run from November 1 through November 23. Last year, the schools participating in The Great Ignatian Challenge collected and distributed over 334,400 pounds of food. Over the past six years, The Great Ignatian Challenge has collected and distributed over 937,000 pounds of food!
Join us for Loyola's Open Houses this October! We look forward to welcoming prospective students and their families in-person on October 6th and October 26th, and virtually on October 17th. The night will include opportunities to meet teachers and current students, a tour of the school, and presentations from faculty, staff, and students. Hope to see you there!
This fall, officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced the names of over 16,000 Semifinalists in the 68th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. Loyola School is proud to announce that Dimosthenis '23 has been named a National Merit Semifinalist! He will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for one of 7,250 National Merit Scholarships worth a total of $28 million, which will be offered in Spring 2023. Congratulations!
