Jesuit Mission & Tradition

The Jesuits have specialized in education for more than 450 years. Loyola Blakefield traces its history through that long legacy back to the first school founded by St. Ignatius Loyola at Messina, Italy, in 1548. And we’ve drawn our energy and passion for educating young men for others from the Jesuit tradition.

    Our teachers blend challenging curriculum with the spirituality of St. Ignatius to form a well-rounded educational experience. You’ll experience academic excellence here as the beginning of a lifelong discipline and pursuit, inseparable from faith and serving others. We call it educating the whole person. “Go forth and set the world on fire.” Those powerful words of St. Ignatius inform how we’ve guided, challenged and inspired our young Dons since we opened our doors.

  • Ignatian Pedagogy

    With the goal to develop you as a man of competence, conscience and compassion, our teachers and faculty will guide your intellectual, spiritual, moral and emotional development. They’ll consider the context of your life to create a learning environment that makes it comfortable and eventually second nature to recollect past experiences and master information from new ones. You’ll learn how to reflect deeply and you’ll be challenged to serve members of the community.
