Academics

Grades 6 through 12 through life...

Loyola Blakefield will prepare you to expand your notion of what you can learn and achieve, or even imagine achieving. As a Jesuit school, we combine the discipline of a challenging academic curriculum with educational experiences that integrate lessons outside the classroom. As a Don you'll get a sure footing in religion and history, math and science, English, languages and the arts, allowing you to learn to read more closely, think more carefully and write more clearly. Ours is a uniquely well-rounded education in which you'll learn to search for God in all things.

 

Our Educational Philosophy - Cura Personalis

The Loyola Blakefield educator knows and respects each student for the unique mind and heart that he
is. The core of our philosophy is the personal concern for the individual. We talk about it, we practice it
and we teach it.

Physical Education and Confidence Development

Meeting challenges and solving problems aren’t just reserved for the classroom. We stress physical education for grades 6 through 10 to nurture the healthy habit of teamwork, and a belief in the mutual benefits of an active body and mind. Through our intramural sports programs, you'll develop friendships, pride in accomplishment and confidence. Plus it’s fun.
