Saint Ignatius High School

Tel: (216)651-0222
Grades: 9-12 | 1500 students
A Saint Ignatius student is a religious person.
He has a basic knowledge of the major doctrines, practices and spirituality of the Catholic Church.
He strengthens his relationship with a religious tradition and community.
(What is said here, respectful of the conscience of the individual, also applies to the students of other religious backgrounds.) Saint Ignatius students consistently receive academic recognition from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation: in 2015-16 we have 21 Semifinalists, 22 Commended Students and 2 National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholars.  Almost sixty percent of the teachers have been at the school ten or more years, and almost fifty percent of them are Ignatius graduates who have returned to the school to support and continue its reputation for academic excellence. Ninety percent of the professional staff hold advanced degrees.
