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

President's Office

President Fr. Raymond P. Guiao, S.J. ’82, Director of Mission Fr. Dan Reim, S.J., and Executive Administrative Assistant Barbara Watowicz work to ensure the school’s mission, strong Catholic identity and faith formation remain firmly in place.

Rev. Raymond P. Guiao, S. J. ’82 is the 26th president of Saint Ignatius High School. As an alumnus of the school, Fr. Guiao joins generations of men, who, in the words of the school’s alma mater are “Ignatius men forever.” 

He was a faculty member in both English and Theology at Saint Ignatius from 1992–1995, returning in 2000 to teach Theology and to direct the Choral and Liturgical Music Programs. Fr. Guiao also served for two years as the interim Vice President for Ignatian Mission at Saint Ignatius. 

Just prior to assuming the presidency of Saint Ignatius in 2015, Fr. Guiao served as the Assistant to the Provincial for Formation for the Chicago-Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus, a position he held since 2008.  In that capacity, he was responsible for leading more than 80 Jesuits in formation.  
Fr. Guiao entered the Society of Jesus in 1986, was ordained to the priesthood in June 1999, and pronounced final vows in the Society of Jesus in 2009. 

“May God continue to bless our school and prosper our mission to form young men to know, love and serve Jesus Christ, no matter what their calling in life may be.”

The President’s office one is of the busiest on campus. Supporting Fr. Guiao in his day-to-day leadership of the school are Fr. Dan Reim, S.J., Director of Mission, and Barbara Watowicz, Executive Administrative Assistant.
