Loyola Academy college preparatory academic program, character education, enrichment and recreation which enable our graduates to succeed in college prep high schools.
Loyola Academy is a Jesuit middle school for boys in grades 6 through 8, with a maximum of 20 students per grade.
The school's mission is to serve boys who have the potential for college preparatory work, but who are in danger of failing to achieve that potential because of poverty, residence in distressed neighborhoods, or other social or economic factors.
The Loyola Academy approach seems to work. Each fall, students who attend Loyola are given the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, a standardized test that had been administered to them a year before.
The average Loyola student, through the course of 3 years at our school, has raised his score 25 or more percentile points -a major improvement, especially when many students from similar backgrounds experience declining scores through the middle school years.
