Education 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. On Monday, March 15, students returned to full-day, in-person learning.

Mexican Border

Traveling to Nogales, Arizona, through the Kino Border Initiative, students learn first-hand about immigration and related issues, specifically at the U.S.-Mexico border. This trip is by invitation and occurs midway during spring semester.

Participants in the Mexican Border mission trip spend their spring break traveling to Nogales, Arizona, to grow in their understanding of immigration and the issues surrounding this complex issue. Students will hear first-hand accounts from immigrants, border patrol agents, missionaries and those who serve the immigrant population along the U.S.-Mexico border. The Kino Border Initiative coordinates this journey, open to select juniors and seniors with an interest in immigration.
