Our Name Is Ignatius

Tuition assistance and annual support of our operations is more important than ever as COVID-19 continues to affect our community. Considering the dramatic changes in our lives, the economy, and the ways we proceed here on campus, your support is even more critical. Please consider a gift to the Annual Fund to continue the tradition of a Saint Ignatius education for our current families.

Saint Ignatius High School

Jesuit Identity

What makes Saint Ignatius a Jesuit high school? For starters, the Grad-at-Grad, Ignatian spirituality, cura personalis and faith formation that are all at the heart of our mission!

What is distinctive about Jesuit education? Character formation. Our aim is to develop students in every dimension of the person so that they will become men of character, ready to serve God, capable of making a great difference in the lives of others.

  • Alma Mater

    Our famed Alma Mater graces
    Every shrine within our hearts
    With her unforgotten faces
    And the faith that she imparts.
    Years in passing cannot sever
    Ties of new days from the old.
    We're Ignatius Men Forever
    As we hail the blue and gold.
