St. Ignatius of Loyola School is fortunate to have the help of the Los Angeles Unified School District which provides reading intervention to students. At present, these classes take place in a portable unit on our property. Teachers emphasize literacy instruction. Title 1 also provides our students with math intervention. If a parent chooses not to have their child participate in the “pull out” program, they may write a note to the school Principal at the beginning of the school year.

Classes are scheduled to visit our school library on a weekly basis. The library is an inviting facility that enables students to embrace a variety of authors and genre. Classes also utilize the library for research work. The Book Club immerses students in a variety of literature and book talks.
Students in grades K-3 are engaged in the Computer Lab working within five centers. Students in grades 4-8 go the computer lab once or twice a week. The teacher follows the Archdiocesan computer Curriculum, whereby the students learn word processing, graphics, keyboarding, and research skills. The program has been expanded with the addition of twenty new Dell computers. Through donors, five SMART boards have enhanced student and teacher educational experience as well as new eBeams in other classrooms.
