    We are so fortunate to have our daughter attend this exceptional school. It’s incredible and you really have to go there to truly experience for yourself it’s outstanding academics, community and stunning campus.

    My daughter tells us all of the time how grateful she is that she was able to go to school here,and my husband and I wish we’d had the opportunity to go here as well! I cannot express that this school knows how to educate students and prepare them for college. They also leave with a special bond to the school and community that they will have for a lifetime in addition to having the the honor of being a graduate.

    Best school ever! They have everything you could possible want in a high school! Most schools say they have things and at the surface it may look like they do but really don't. All you need to do is spend time at SICP and know what a special place this is. SICP's 150 year history and landmark status has given it credentials no other high school can claim. It has top notch academics, religion, financial aid, counseling, parent involvement, diversity, innovation...you name it they have it.
    My experience at Saint Ignatius has been fantastic! The teachers and other students are supportive and welcoming. I played two sports, and while the school spirit isn’t the best in terms of coming out for support, the competing atmopshpere is definetly there. Students come from all over the chicago land area, all of whom are academically driven and smart. Overall I love it
