Loyola Academy

St. Louis, MO

As a NativityMiguel school, Loyola Academy of St. Louis differs from other educational institutions in that it serves low-income students, complements - not competes with - other St. Louis schools, and includes an extended school day, extended school year and “wrap-around” services not typically associated with a school such as health care, recreation, tutoring and mentoring that would support the student and his family.  All of these have been proven to increase academic success among our target population. Loyola Academy also differs from other schools in that it is, in total, a 13-year program. 

One hundred percent of Loyola alumni are accepted into local college preparatory high schools, and these alumni are supported academically, socially and financially throughout all four years of high school in order to help ensure their success. All of these services are geared toward ensuring that our students become responsible, successful and productive members of society. 

Founded in 1999, Loyola currently serves approximately 60 students per year through middle school operations and approximately 75 students through its Graduate Support program.
