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.

Loyola Academy is a school with deep focuses on academics and athletics. The result of this is a highly competitive environment, yet the college preparatory experience is valuable. Most of the teachers look out for their students and make it easy for students to succeed if they are motivated to do so. The student body is not very diverse, and as a result of this much of it is relatively close-minded despite the opportunities for growth stated in the school’s mission and provided by some of the faculty.
My Experience was a little different compared to other students. I found out about LA at my 8th grade championship football game. The parents of a player on other team came up to me and my mom and told us that we should apply for financial aid at Loyola. I at first had no clue that the school even existed. My mom never mentioned it due to the cost of tuition. I took the entrance exam and applied for financial aid. I received aid and got accepted. Ever since that day, I have loved every single moment at Loyola. The community is so friendly. The teachers challenge students and always have their doors open. Another thing was the writing lab, math lab, and science lab. All major necessities for success. Sports on the other hand are very competitive. That is what sports are all about and at Loyola you will be a part of that competitive atmosphere. Loyola had everything I needed athletically and more importantly academically. I could not have asked for a better place to attend high school.
