No one place is the best fit for everyone; however, Loyola High School gives young men the BEST chance to belong to something greater than themselves, to be part of a community that they will treasure for the rest of their lives. Attending Loyola, if you are blessed with the opportunity to do so, is a "life decision" of gargantuan significance. At 13 years of age, it is hard to comprehend what that really means. At 51, nearly 33 years after my last few days as a student on the Loyola campus, I have learned that making a "life decision" to attend Loyola means that you are at the best place to develop intellectually, socially, academically, athletically, and spiritually. Attending Loyola has meant always having brothers, brothers that are united in the service of others and each other. For the rest of your life, you will have your Loyola brothers. Loyola guys, whether they are 15, 35, or 65, always acknowledge one another, show concern for one another, and offer assistance, if needed. There is a life-long kinship that you will experience in the workplace, social circles, or just at the supermarket. At 13 years of age, you may not know how great you have it, but you will.
