Our Mission Is Essential

COVID-19 has presented a tremendous challenge for Saint Ignatius High School to balance our mission of providing an academically rigorous, Catholic, Jesuit education along with the health and safety recommendations of leading healthcare experts. Due to a rise in the number of positive cases, we are pivoting to virtual learning beginning Monday, November 16.

The Welsh Academy, like Saint Ignatius High School, is for boys only and offers a curriculum based in Jesuit ideals and Catholic theology. The academy is a middle school – grades 6 through 8 – for students who primarily live in Cleveland, its inner-ring suburbs, and who attend either public or charter schools. Potential Welsh Academy students demonstrate personal commitment and academic promise though most may not have had opportunities that allow them to reach their fullest promise and potential. The Welsh Academy provides the formation that is the hallmark of Jesuit education.
