Saint Ignatius has helped me in all different aspects of my life and this amazing institution protected me from the scary transitions when I was going through some challenges. I am a Mexican-American student who is first generation college bound so I can speak upon the diversity and honestly Saint Ignatius is inclusive and welcoming as long as the student puts themselves out there to meet new people and break social barriers. Every place has its bad and good traits and no school is perfect but SI is supportive in making everyone from every ethnic, social, and economic background feel as equal as possible. I also played sports at SI and I was president of the Wildcat Welcoming Club. I was apart of the Association of Latin American Students, so I saw many different aspects of Saint Ignatius and I cannot complain! This school has empowered me to set forth and achieve my goals being a minority woman. I am forever thankful for the experiences and support this school had given me.

I like SI because there is great people who want to make your high school experience great for both the present and the future. The school provides students with academics that are challenging enough to make students work hard, but are enough not to overwhelm a student. There are many resources for students who need help academically, but also personally with caring counselors. SI provides many extra curricular activities, such as sports and clubs, to help students enjoy high school and meet new friends. The athletic and academic facilities are very nice and provide students and athletes great support. SI provides college readiness through the academics, but also with great college counselors that help students make decisions that fit their intended major and financial situation. I feel safe in campus with security guards always looking after the student and faculty.
St. Ignatius offered a variety of academic, social, and emotional support through amazing teachers, counselors, fun clubs and events, affinity groups, a Magis program and so much more. This school and this community truly cares and I am so thankful to have been a part of this community. Go Cats!
