Message from the President
At a time when some Catholic schools are struggling to maintain a steady enrollment, Loyola Blakefield continues to thrive. Embracing the twenty-first century, we remain competitive both academically and co-curricularly. Our history is imbued with 161 years of forming young men for others, yet Loyola Blakefield cannot rest on its laurels and merely ride the wave of its foundation and tradition. Since the days of Saint Ignatius, Jesuit schools have been innovative and continue to be so. We look at the world through a different lens; we challenge society’s traditional ways of proceeding.
As this century progresses, Loyola Blakefield must remain cognizant of who we are and where we came from, but more importantly we must further refine who we want to continue becoming. For many, including students, faculty, families, and alumni, Loyola Blakefield continues to serve as a primary faith community. Young people long for meaningful, trusting, and lasting relationships with their teachers, both lay and religious. Our community must always be a place of safety, comfort, and growth—a place where the doors remain open, where students continue to grow ever more loving, religious, dedicated to academic excellence, committed to diversity, and committed to working for a just world.
Thank you for visiting our website and learning more about our school; I would encourage you to visit our campus as well. Loyola is a special place, gifted with a wonderful community of students, staff, parents, and alumni, all of whom strive to do all things Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam - for the Greater Glory of God. We would be most happy to assist you further if you are considering becoming a member of our community.
Mr. Anthony I. Day
