Message from the President

Dear Friends,

Inspired academics, spiritual formation, and the building of lifelong friendships are just a few hallmarks of the Loyola Blakefield experience. During their time at Blakefield, our Dons are preparing for success in college, but also developing traits that will serve them throughout the rest of their lives.

I hope that you’ll explore Loyola and come to realize the tremendous difference that our Ignatian principles and unique approach to education can have on young men in the 21st century. Our proud Jesuit heritage is a strong foundation, but we are also incredibly innovative and always evolving to meet the needs of our students.

As a proud parent of two Dons, I’ve had a front row seat in witnessing just how powerful the Loyola experience can be. I invite you to explore all that our school community has to offer and begin your Loyola journey today.

Roll Dons Roll!

Mr. Anthony I. Day, P '15, '19
