This school is just fantastic! It has all the clubs and activities in the world for anyone to be involved with. Most sports, such as basketball, football, volleyball, are a viable to all students to tryout for and play. The school is completely ingrained into the sports culture because we ar so great at them. We have recently won a football state championship and many lacrosse state championships. Overall, it is a sport-oriented school that prepares every student to succeed in college and life the moral way.

I have been at my current high school since 2016, and I have seen it go through a lot of changes already throughout the years. My parents had the intention of sending me to a school that would prepare me for the life of a college student, being away from home, making my own decisions, and discovering who I are on my own with the tools I acquired throughout childhood and from from them raising you until the age of 18. I feel as if the majority of the kids that I have gone to school with and formed relationships with think that this is just any other high school. Many of the students including most of my friends have had prior exposure to a private education from grades Pre-K to 8th grade, and we don't think much of it. However, what we don't realize that even though it is difficult to meet the standards of Loyola Academy's rigorous curriculum is that our own teachers, guidance and college counselors, and parents have prepared us for the rest of our lives after becoming adults.
Loyola Academy is an academically challenging and competitive private high school. I appreciated the rigor of the courses and the seriousness of the students and faculty. It pushed me to work harder and thus achieve more. However, I lacked the experience of diversity and did not see grand and important changes in the student body. During senior year, I was introduced to the block schedule which tremendously helped with the course load of honors and AP classes. That was the only change done. Today, Loyola Academy's white community has become more negatively vocal towards people of color attending the school. The community needs to understand the importance and value of diversity.
