IGNITE: The Campaign for Loyola Blakefield

The most ambitious fundraising effort in Loyola's history, Ignite will result in the construction of an Innovative Learning Center, which will serve as the new home to our middle school students. The campaign also includes a significant investment in Loyola’s endowment, and an opportunity to increase annual giving to the Loyola Fund — a critical source of revenue that supports every aspect of student life.

Our goals for both the endowment and Loyola Fund have been met, leaving one component to fund — the Innovative Learning Center. This state-of-the-art building will unite all grade levels and provide valuable resources to meet the needs of our Dons in a 21st-century learning environment. The result will be an addition to our campus ideally suited to the needs of every Don — where ideas are shared, creativity blossoms, and future careers are inspired.

Ignite will impact Loyola for generations to come. Please consider supporting this exciting initiative

Innovative Learning Center

Enriched with history, Loyola Blakefield embodies innovation. We will connect our past and our future by creating a space best suited to the needs of our students, by building flexible accommodations to house our sixth through eighth graders, a multi-media library and laboratories for our award-winning Robotics and Cyber Science programs.

Boys learn differently, and we must accommodate their needs with resources that will make our campus and programs leaders of our market, preparing our students for an economy of the future.
