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.

COVID-19 Update

We hope that you are safe and healthy during this uncertain time. We look ahead to next year’s admissions cycle with hope to share the Saint Ignatius experience with our future students in-person.

Saint Ignatius High School has a holistic admissions review process that takes into account a range of components that are reviewed collectively and comprehensively. We understand that school closures in the light of COVID-19 have brought major adjustments to the delivery of instruction and implementation of assessments. Please be assured an understanding of these modifications and circumstances will inform next year’s admissions process.

We are aware that our prospective families are looking ahead to their son’s high school decision within the new context of COVID-19. Although we are still working out some details, we strive to remain transparent with you to enable your family to plan accordingly. We are happy to inform you that we have adjusted some dates and procedures to ensure the health and safety of all faculty, staff, students, and guests in attendance at our in-person admissions events. We invite you to read through these updates in our Admissions Calendar below.

We invite you to learn about the ways in which the mission of Saint Ignatius High School has continued amid the COVID-19 crisis by reading "What Is Essential”, the cover story from the Spring 2020 issue of Saint Ignatius Magazine. As we look ahead to brighter days, we know God will continue to bless our school with talented young men and families who are dedicated to partnering with us as we live out our mission.

Virtual Tour

  • Diocesan School Applicants

    Prospective students who attend diocesan schools will receive applications in mid-January from their grade school. The application deadline will be at the end of the same week in which the applications are distributed. Upon submission of the Diocesan application, records will be sent to the applicant's "first-choice" school.

  • Non-Diocesan School Applicants

    Prospective students who do not attend Diocesan schools must submit a non-Diocesan application form to our office by January 30. The application will become official upon the receipt of the non-Diocesan application form and transcripts, in addition to other required forms.

  • Decision Letters

    The admissions committee is made up of 10-12 members of the administration and faculty. In early February, the committee will consider all of these applications at the same time and will select our incoming class based on the philosophies set by the school's Board of Regents. All decision letters will be mailed on February 15.
