Vision ’30 is boldly moving the school toward an academic program uniquely designed to respond to the unpredictable, changing demands that students will face in the coming decades. This campaign will provide the resources to renew and expand academic excellence in alignment with Jesuit tradition, and create physical facilities that will support the best education in the region informed by research-based understandings of how adolescent boys learn.

While our campus grounds present a beautiful setting in the heart of Ohio City, our core academic high school classroom facilities are worn, outdated, and in need of significant improvements. The Campaign for Vision ’30 will provide classroom flexibility for project-based work, small group work, and interdisciplinary programming which are necessary for real-world learning as we move into the future. New academic spaces include classrooms of varying sizes, a visual arts center, 140 seat large group instruction room, school and college counseling center, student common spaces and an athletic suite. In addition, renovated spaces include the library, Walton Center and a refresh of existing classrooms in the Main Classroom Building and Loyola Hall. The new and renovated academic spaces will prepare our students to be critical thinkers, collaborators, and creators while following our Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm (IPP) as teachers and students move through cycles of experience, reflection and action.

Vision ’30 emerged from faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends fromrepeated experiences, reflection and action known as the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm. Vision ’30 will create a renewed sense of rich tradition for the future of our school, students and mission.
