From the first Jesuit school opened in Messina, Sicily in 1548
to the 3,750 schools worldwide caring for 2.5 million students, Jesuit education has focused on caring for the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. The hallmark of Jesuit education is an equal concern for developing the intellect along with spiritual growth and a commitment to social justice. Through Ignatian traditions, our students learn to be aware of God's presence in their lives.

The Loyola Early Learning Center develops the skills, attitudes, and concepts needed for success in kindergarten and elementary school and includes:

  • Activities that develop language, speaking, and listening, as well as reading and writing readiness
  • Enhancing social interaction skills
  • Integrating music, drama, and visual arts
  • Exposure to early science and math concepts
  • Daily physical activity to develop gross and fine motor coordination
