About Loyola

Loyola Blakefield is a Catholic, Jesuit, college preparatory school founded in 1852, for boys in grades six through twelve located in Towson, Maryland. Loyola Blakefield offers a challenging college preparatory curriculum that provides a broad range of major course offerings including honors and advanced placement courses, complemented by a selection of enriching electives and co-curricular activities. Ignatian service and spiritual formation, in the Jesuit tradition, is the hallmark of a Loyola education. There are 17 interscholastic sports teams at Loyola Blakefield, as well as musical and dramatic performing arts ensembles, and many clubs and student organizations.

Our Educational Philosophy: Cura Personalis

The Loyola Blakefield educator knows and respects each student for the unique mind and heart that he is. The core of our philosophy is the personal concern for the individual. We talk about it, we practice it and we teach it.

Beyond the Classroom

We inspire and challenge students in ways that go beyond most college preparatory environments. Our Dons develop knowledge for sure. But they also develop values, spiritual growth, responsibility for others and a lifelong love for learning - the core that really prepares them to transform into active members of the global community. In the words of St. Ignatius to St. Xavier they “Go forth and set the world on fire.”

  • Our Dons!

    Our proudest moments are sometimes when we hear from members of the community that praise our Dons for their positive spirits and genuine care and concern for others. Hard to miss as they are generally marked by a Loyola t-shirt, hat or jacket, our Dons represent Loyola proudly both on and off of our campus.

  • A Proud Tradition of Excellence

    In the past year alone, our Dons achieved championship level success in nine different program areas and that is no fluke. From Speech and Debate, to the stage and on the turf, our Dons work hard and excel in many areas... most importantly, they do so with character.

  • Our Campus

    We moved here in 1934 and the grounds are just as tranquil as they were then. We've grown to meet the needs of today's Dons, but our campus is still very much reflective of our history and tradition.
