Loyola has an unbelievable education on two fronts: school education and moral education. By attending Loyola, not only do you receive the best education in Illinois, but also learn what it means to be a Man or Woman for others.
The best times I had ar Loyola we're playing football. I played all four years, and it really grew me into a man. Our coaches taught us hard work and to never quit, and taught us what's it means to have respect for all, especially parents and outs opponents. Along with moral lessons, playing football taught me hard work, and practicing perfect makes perfect.
Review Loyola Academy
Great school overall - academics - for both IEP and AP students (5 stars in both areas), diversity, clubs, college prep, etc. Three stars for faculty - many nights I do not get my homework assignments posted until after 5:00pm or after 7:00pm. Wish the rule was "homework posted by 4:00pm!" This is the dark side of technology. Football is everything at Loyola - so beware of the inequality if you do a sport other than football, much less recognition for your team's achievements.
As a senior, I think I know Loyola pretty well. It doesn't a good job with academics, though many students struggle greatly with the workload. It's an expensive school, but the rigor prepares students for college. Some teachers and administrators are strict about unimportant rules (mainly concerning dress code), but it is mainly to maintain the dignified school appearance. As a Jesuit school, there's is a big focus on reflection and God, but many people of other beliefs thrive there too.
