School and Results 

St. Ignatius Loyola Academy, founded in 1993, is a tuition-free Jesuit Catholic school serving boys in grades 5-8 with a vision of breaking the cycle of poverty through education. One hundred percent of enrolled student’s families qualify for the Federal free or reduced lunch program. Students live throughout Baltimore City and only 7% of students are Roman Catholic while 45% have no church affiliation. The success of the Academy's unique program featuring an extended day eleven-month school year combined with a rigorous curriculum, small class sizes and mentoring support after graduating leads to achievement in high school and college and lives as productive men for others. Since its founding, 98% of Academy graduates have received a high school diploma and 88% have matriculated in college. 

Located in Baltimore’s Federal Hill neighborhood, St. Ignatius Loyola Academy offers a supportive learning community for both students and faculty, small class sizes (13-15 students), and work-life balance. Academy graduates attend exemplary public and private high schools, both day and boarding, in Baltimore and throughout the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions. Our Graduate Support Program provides counseling and advising support to over 200 graduates who are currently attending high school and college. The Academy is an independent Catholic Jesuit school accredited by the Association of Independent Maryland and DC Schools (AIMS) and sponsored by the USA East Jesuit Province. Grounded in that educational tradition, the Academy’s faculty and staff educate deserving young men to be intellectually competent, open to growth, loving, religious, and committed to doing justice.
