Quality Catholic Education
St. Ignatius of Loyola is a Catholic Elementary School serving children in Transitional Kindergarten through eighth grade in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles, California. St. Ignatius has been providing a quality education, challenging students to develop and share their God-given gifts in a faith-filled environment for over 90 years. In July 2011, St. Ignatius was awarded the highest accreditation – 6 years, by WASC, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and WCEA, the Western California Educational Association.
St. Ignatius’ curriculum has proven to be very successful. Our comprehensive curriculum focuses on the development of the whole child: mind, body and spirit. St. Ignatius faculty provides students with greater depth, rigor, greater differentiation, individualization and acceleration in learning wherever possible. The result is an authentic Catholic education, marked by academic rigor and dynamic spiritual formation.
St. Ignatius School has been administered by the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose for the past 89 years, founded by Mother Maria Pia, O.P., who chose the young, the poor and vulnerable of this world as her special apostolic concern. Based on the Dominican Charism, “To Praise, To Bless, To Preach, “the Sisters continue their ministry in the school. Currently, one Dominican Sister is on staff as a religious advisor to our teachers and closely works with our students preparing for our weekly Student Body Masses.
St. Ignatius takes seriously its responsibility to challenge and elevate each student both intellectually and spiritually. Thank you for considering St. Ignatius of Loyola School.
