Loyola High School of Los Angeles is one of the top-ranked all-boys Jesuit Catholic college preparatory schools in the country. Founded in 1865, Loyola became a Jesuit institution in 1911 and the Jesuit philosophy of educating the whole person, Cura Personalis, continues at the school today.

As Southern California’s oldest continuously run educational institution, Loyola remains committed to providing an academically rigorous college preparatory education to young men who will graduate ready for lives of leadership and service to their community.

This student body of over 1,250 represents a strong diversity in geography, ethnicity and socio-economic backgrounds. We draw from over 215 zip codes throughout and beyond Los Angeles County, and nearly half of our students are Latino, Asian-Pacific or African-American. Ninety-nine percent of Loyola graduates go on to college or university.

To foster “Men for and with Others,” Loyola students must complete at least 140 hours of community service before graduation. Over the past two decades, Loyola students have donated more than 1.7 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, talented faculty and staff as well as in our partnership with generous and visionary parents, donors, alumni and friends.
