St. Ignatius of Loyola School


The Mission of St. Ignatius of Loyola School is to provide a firm foundation in the Catholic faith and in learning excellence for elementary and preschool-age children in a safe environment and active community life.


The beginning of St. Ignatius of Loyola School dates back to the founding of our parish, which took place in the 1840s. The school began in a one-room log church with classes held during the week for school-age children living in the area. After the log church was burned down, the school moved to a one-room schoolhouse. Just a few years later, today’s school was built to accommodate the growing student population.


Students attend Mass twice a week, proclaiming the Word of God and praising Him in song. We pray a weekly Rosary for our school and parish and celebrate many special liturgies. Through our Virtues in Action program, students are involved in monthly projects that benefit the community and foster personal growth.


A strong and rigorous education is the hallmark of St. Ignatius of Loyola School. In this, we emphasize exceptional command of reading, writing, mathematics, science, history, geography, and the Catholic faith. Our teachers use contemporary technology to its full advantage, along with the latest teaching methodologies.

Dynamic Community

We have a strong tradition of participation in the Archdiocesan Bellarmine Speech League, intramural volleyball and basketball programs and a growing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) curriculum. Special classes include music, art, technology and physical education.
