About Loyola > Welcome
As the oldest continuously run educational institution in Southern California, Loyola High School remains committed to providing a rigorous college-preparatory education to a diverse group of young men who leave the school prepared for lives of leadership and service to their community.
Our student body of 1,200 young men represents an unusually strong diversity in ethnicity, socio-economic background and geography. We draw from 220 zip codes throughout and beyond Los Angeles County, while some 51 percent of our students are of Asian, Latino or African-American descent. Ninety-nine percent of Loyola graduates go on to college or university, while 96 percent enroll in four-year colleges throughout California and across the nation.
To foster “men for others,” Loyola students must complete at least 155 hours of community service work before graduation, but most volunteer for many additional hours. Over the past two decades, Loyola students have donated more than 1.2 million hours of community service, primarily to inner-city schools, neighborhoods and agencies.
Loyola is a community in every sense of the word – in our commitment to the young men we are privileged to serve, in our active alumni association that embodies the philosophy of “Cubs for life,” in our dedicated and extraordinarily talented faculty and staff, in our partnership with generous and visionary parents, donors and friends.
