School and Results
Saint Ignatius Loyola Academy is an independent, tuition-free, Jesuit middle school for boys from low-income communities. The children we serve lack access to high quality schools and support programs that can change the trajectory of their lives. Through our innovative educational program, the Academy offers a path of hope and resolve to young men in Baltimore City. The educational experiences and opportunities the Academy provides are designed specifically to address the needs of urban boys by developing the intellectual, physical, and social qualities of each student leading to their success in high school, college, and adult lives. Our results speak to that future. Over the school’s 24-year history, 98% of graduates have received a high school diploma. Eighty-eight percent of graduates go on to immediately enroll in college or other post-secondary education, surpassing the Maryland and national rates. The Academy is a private institution with a very public purpose.
Founded in 1993 and located in Baltimore’s Federal Hill neighborhood, Saint Ignatius Loyola Academy is an extended day and eleven-month school year program for 115 fifth through eighth grade students representing 23 zip codes across Baltimore. Saint Ignatius Loyola Academy graduates attend exemplary public and private high schools, both day and boarding, in Baltimore and throughout the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions. Our Graduate Support Program provides counseling and advising support to over 180 graduates who are attending outstanding regional and national high schools and colleges. The Academy is an independent Catholic Jesuit school accredited by the Association of Independent Maryland and DC Schools (AIMS) and sponsored by the Maryland Province of Jesuits. Grounded in that educational tradition, the Academy’s faculty and staff educate deserving young men to be intellectually competent, open to growth, loving, religious, and committed to doing justice.
