St. Ignatius has an excellent preschool, elementary, and middle school. My kids have made great friends, grown in their faith, and have learned so much from the wonderful teachers at St. Ignatius.

St. Ignatius has more than 3 sports. It had cross-country, soccer, and volleyball too. It is the best school ever, all the teachers are amazing and everyone is so nice. We learn a lot and can earn many awards for good grades and other things too. You can be in many after-school clubs and organizations.

Excellence in all categories! The academic curriculum at every grade level is challenging. The school does an amazing job of incorporating outdoor learning experiences for all students. Each child is encouraged to develop their physical abilities via sports, and the spirit of sportsmanship is taught on every field and court. Most impressively, the school and church work seamlessly to enrich the spirit of every student. Mass, adoration, missions, group rosary, and daily religion classes are the heart of this school and you can see the difference it has made in the hearts of the students who graduate from St. Ignatius. Highly recommended!
