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, January 11, we returned to our current On Campus schedule.

Saint Ignatius High School

Week in Review: April 13 - 17, 2020

Following Holy Week we have all the updates from spring break including Fine Arts teacher Jon Jarc '93 in the news and upcoming Language Week activities.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Holy Week services. We welcomed nearly 1,400 viewers between Holy Thursday and Easter Sunday. Our viewers came from four different countries and 36 different states. We are happy to continue to keep our community connected through our faith and we invite you to join us for Sunday's private Mass at 9 a.m. and a private Taizé Prayer Service on Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. Download Worship Aids and pray with us at home.

Speaking of Wildcamps, we continue to plan for our summer programs including Summer Enrichment Program and athletic summer sports camps. Due to scheduling concerns, we invite all those interested in spending their summer at Saint Ignatius to fill out our WildCamp interest form. By filling out this form, a camper's spot will be reserved for the selected camp(s). As summer draws nearer, scheduling decisions will be made in accordance with the governor of Ohio's orders. If the camps are scheduled to occur, separate payment forms will be sent to you via the email address provided. Please note that the separate registration form and camp fee are due before the first day of the camp in order to complete the registration process.

Monday, April 20 marks the official start of our 2020 Languages Week! Each day celebrates a different language offered through our curriculum including French, Spanish, Chinese, Greek and Latin. Complete with student challenges, kitchen creations and Chariot Races, we invite you to join in on our virtual celebrations. Learn more: https://www.ignatius.edu/news/april-2020/2020languagesweek

Our teachers continue to innovate during our Virtual Learning Protocol. Last week, Spanish teacher Sara Sebring held a Spanish speaker series via Zoom. Six people who use Spanish in their daily lives took time to talk and answer questions for students in Mrs. Sebring's classes.

Students Aidan Conway '21 and Aidan Millett '20 bonded through their time on the Wildcat hockey team, but their bond goes deeper than that. Read this story by Communications Coordinator for Athletics Joe Ginley '12 as he tells the tale of cousins who deepened their relationship through shared experience.
