Welcome! I would like to begin by saying thank you for your interest in Loyola High School. As a product of Jesuit education I can say that it is an extraordinary experience. Jesuits have been recognized worldwide as tremendous educators for almost five centuries. Loyola High School has proudly been a part of that tradition for 150 years and is the oldest continuing secondary school in all of Southern California.High school is a time for change. Some of us embrace that change and for some it seems intimidating. Loyola has an amazing ability to appreciate the individual gifts of each student and to challenge them to share those gifts with our school community and the world beyond.
Our greatest asset is our student body. What makes Loyola unique is how our students learn by experience, help form one another and make a difference by serving others. The Cubs are an extremely talented group of young men who exemplify character, faith, and hard work. They become great friends and have fun while embracing new challenges.
In admissions our goal is simply to provide you and your son information to help your family make the best decision for his future. To learn more about us, we encourage you to explore the rest of our website, and visit us at Open House on Sunday, December 4, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. In addition, during the months of October and November we present at a number of High School Information Nights hosted by elementary schools. The calendar linked to this Admissions page will have those dates after the schools invite Loyola to present.
If you would like to apply for 9th grade, you may access and complete the application through our website.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (213) 381-5121 x1200, or you may e-mail me directly at email@example.com.
Mr. Heath Utley
Director of Admissions
