Loyola Blakefield Academics
Loyola Blakefield is a Jesuit school for young men in grades six through twelve. Our mission is to form graduates who are intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to justice. Committed to the liberal arts approach, the ultimate goal of Ignatian education is to enable men and women to praise, revere and serve God and to search for God in all things. Loyola Blakefield's academic program is rigorous and prepares a young man for a life of inquiry, for a life of decision making, and for a life of learning. With a strong foundation in religion and history, in math and in science, in English, languages and the arts, a student explores diverse course offerings and comes to read more closely, think more carefully, and write more clearly. In so doing, we hope that he comes to see God in all things.
The philosophy of Loyola Blakefield is to provide each student with challenging and thoughtful teaching, cura personalis, or care for the individual, and motivation in a spiritual environment. It is our hope that when students are ready to graduate, it is with conscience, confidence and a sense of who they are and what they have to share with others in the next phase of their lives. At Loyola Blakefield, we continue to build values, relationships and foundations for the future of each student.
All schools are for learning and Loyola is no exception; nor is learning destined to end at graduation. Indeed, most Loyola graduates, equipped with the necessary skills, continue their learning at distinguished colleges and universities throughout the country.
