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. Rooted in the teachings of St. Ignatius, our educational approach embraces a holistic development of mind, body, and spirit.

For centuries, Jesuit schools have been dedicated to nurturing compassionate leaders, critical thinkers, and lifelong learners who strive for excellence in all facets of life. Our commitment to the Ignatian values of discernment, reflection, and service fosters a vibrant community where students are encouraged to explore their potential, question the world around them, and contribute meaningfully to society.

Join us in continuing this transformative journey that empowers students to embrace the challenges of the modern world with an unwavering commitment to justice, faith, and the pursuit of knowledge.
