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.
I believe in educational equity, the City of Cleveland and opportunity. These ideas along with a strong connection to Jesuit spirituality and love of Fr. Welsh brought me to the Academy.
The history and mission of the academy dates back to the 1990s when it was simply a dream of former president Fr. Robert J. Welsh, S.J. '54. It continues today where new chapters of its story are now being written.
