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

Arrupe Summer Program

The Arrupe Summer Program is one of Cleveland's largest summer camps, providing academic and recreational enrichment for local youth. High school students serve as counselors and mentors for the five-week program, held at Urban Community School.

As a role model through the Arrupe Summer Camp, I was able to show my campers how to be good friends to each other despite their different personalities.

For nearly 25 years, Arrupe has hosted one of the largest summer enrichment programs for children in the City of Cleveland. Nearly 200 3rd-8th grade neighborhood kids register annually for the Arrupe Summer Program, held at nearby Urban Community School. During this five-week experience, each participant is matched up with a high school counselor who acts as a mentor and friend.

Attendees participate in daily classes covering math, language arts, science and healthy habits; receive breakfast and lunch daily; play sports and try out arts activities; and attend as many as four field trips to unique and interesting locations.

Junior high students participate in the Arrupe Explorers program, with activities and programs geared toward preparation for high school and career opportunities.
