Take the Next Step

Loyola Blakefield welcomes qualified applicants with a variety of talents, interests, and perspectives. We seek students who are motivated and enthusiastic about learning, and who will contribute to and benefit from a stimulating and rigorous college prep environment. 

In the face of the COVID pandemic, Loyola Blakefield pledges to maintain the safest possible environment for our students, faculty and staff, and any on-campus guests. Therefore, we cannot accommodate Shadow Visit Days at this time. Instead, we hope to share our story with you and provide you with the opportunities to discover more about our community through online interviews and virtual visit experiences.
