Ohio AfterSchool Child Enrichment (ACE)
Saint Ignatius High School, Cleveland's Catholic Jesuit high school for young men, is rooted in Ignatian spirituality and has formed leaders since 1886. Through outstanding academics, exceptional athletics and arts, and a deep commitment to faith and service, Saint Ignatius students are open to growth, intellectually competent, religious, loving and committed to social justice. Our freshmen begin as boys and our graduates emerge as Men for Others.
The Saint Ignatius Summer Enrichment Program
(SEP) has served the greater Cleveland community since 1968, accounting for more than 50 years of academic, social, cultural and athletic enrichment opportunities for young men entering the eighth grade. Through a combination of academic instruction and athletic opportunities, SEP creates a competitive, yet friendly atmosphere that adequately prepares students for the challenges of high school. SEP is the perfect opportunity for young men to become acquainted with life at Saint Ignatius.
In addition, Saint Ignatius offers a variety of summer camps to boys and girls in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. The camps vary from athletic camps to extracirrcular Wildcamps (programing varies from year to year), and allows students to meet new people, expand on their skills and make life-long memories. The teachers and coaches provide a unique educational experience and cultivate a safe community of learning, growth and fun.
