The history of St. Ignatius School in Grand Coteau goes back more than a century.
It had its beginning on Easter Monday, April 7, 1890, under the guidance of the Religious of the Sacred Heart.
The school was then called Sacred Heart Parochial, which was the name of the parish church at that time.
The name of the school was changed from Sacred Heart Parochial School to St. Ignatius School.
This was done in honor of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus whose priests are the administrators of the church parish.
St. Ignatius is also the patron saint of schools.
