My son selected St. Ignatius College Prep after being accepted at seven other non-religious college prep schools. St. Ignatius is a Jesuit school, and we are Presbyterians. He has been facilitated in every manner possible, from Latin and Ancient Greek, to participation in the Regional and State Science Expositions. The facilities are superb, the curriculum is first class, with Honors and Advanced Placement classes readily available to qualified students. The Science, Mathematics, and computer facilities are state-of-the-art; the school discipline and general demeanor of the institution is serious, but not bellicose. The athletic program is excellent, and includes golf and crew. The school is notorious for its homework load, but it is my son's experience that the load is a function of the level of the class...Advanced placement classes carry the most homework. The food, available throughout the day, with charge accounts available, is surprisingly edible, bearing no resemblance to the gruel the served at his father's prep school thirty years ago. St. Ignatius College Prep is Coed, staffed by committed professionals, and an excellent launching pad for a successful university career.
