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. A team of administrators and faculty worked diligently so that our students and teachers could return to the classroom.

Guatemala

Students traveling to Guatemala are immersed in the world of Latin America culture, life, history and politics. With a focus on learning, students visit many sites around the country and spend time doing small service projects with needy communities.

An educational and faith-forming experience, the Guatemala mission trip takes students to this Latin American country with a rich and interesting history. Participants will visit various cooperatives sponsored by International Partners in Mission and hear individual stories of the Guatemalan people. Although some service is involved, most days are about cultural immersion and learning from the Guatemalan people themselves.
