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.

The Academy offers a comprehensive benefits package including paid leave, vacation time, health benefits, life insurance, a technology device allowance, funding for continuing education, and an employer matching 401K retirement plan. Interested candidates for employment should email a cover letter explaining why their experiences have prepared them for a position at Saint Ignatius Loyola Academy, a resume, and a list of three professional references with contact email addresses and phone numbers to email@example.com

Are you interested in teaching? How about in an environment with small class sizes and a dedicated, supportive faculty? Are you looking for an opportunity to coach and be an advisor to a small group of students?
The Saint Ignatius Loyola Academy intern teacher program is a two-year program where you will work with highly motivated inner-city boys who attend the Academy on full scholarships and who are aspiring to attend competitive, college-preparatory high schools and colleges.
SILA Graduate Summer Leadership Institute
The SILA Summer Leadership Institute is an internship opportunity for college-aged graduates to reconnect with the Academy and to explore their own interests in the educational field. In addition to testing out their skills in both the camp setting and the classroom, this program will offer graduates the opportunity to develop their own leadership skills through participation in professional workshops and seminars. Graduates will be mentored by the Graduate Support Directors throughout the duration of the program.
Opportunities include Graduate Camp Advisors at Blue Ridge Camp (June 3-17, 2018) and Graduate Teaching Assistants in the July summer school program at SILA (July 2-27, 2018). Applicants must be SILA graduates, 18 years old and have graduated from high school by June 2, 2018, and complete required trainings. While we encourage applicants to participate in both aspects of the Graduate Summer Leadership Institute, considerations will be made if applicants can only commit to the Blue Ridge Camp or to the July summer school program.
