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.

WALTON CENTER:  Looking for social interaction + academic support?
Was the Walton Center your space for social interaction, extra support with your work, or the place that helped you get started on an assignment?  Or do you need that type of interaction now that you are at home? The {virtual} Walton Center is open for business! Everyday, we have a drop-in hour on Zoom that anyone is welcome to join, even if you have never been to the Walton Center before.  Our staff has additional office hours and is available by appointment, just email the staff you would like to work with - and if you aren’t sure who would be a good match or where to start, email our Director, Ms. Samek: esamek@ignatius.edu.
