Grades 6 - 8 Overview
The grades 6 - 8 program is committed to educating young men in the Jesuit Tradition, according to the teachings of St. Ignatius. Loyola Blakefield successfully provides the bridge to upper school by teaching study skills and imbuing through content what to study and how to study.
Our students come from the comfort of a self-contained classroom in their respective elementary schools and must, during this three-year period, acquire the tools to make the transition to a 9-period day in grades 9 - 12.
Through a rich and rewarding Christian Service Program, coupled with a strong spiritual Retreat Program, these young men begin their journey to self-awareness and develop their sense of caring and concern for others.
