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.

    Cura personalis, or care for the whole person, describes the respect we have for each student’s intellectual, physical, and spiritual well-being. Learn more about how cura personalis is lived out at Saint Ignatius High School.

  • Grad-at-Grad

    You'll see it in our Mission Statement, but the Grad-at-Grad (short for Graduate at Graduation) is a hallmark of Jesuit high school graduates. Successful students will emerge as Open to Growth, Intellectually Competent, Religious, Loving and Committed to work for peace and justice.

  • 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.
