Vision, Mission, Core Values
To be a premier Catholic Jesuit learning community for the 21st century, preparing young men to create a world of justice, peace, truth and love.
To inspire students to become men of faith, scholarship, service and leadership.
Loyola’s core values include belief in and intentional effort toward imbuing:
- Faith – To give students of all faiths a profound, life-changing experience that focuses on God’s unconditional love and a deeper understanding of themselves as persons of faith.
- Jesuit / Ignatian Spirituality – To root students in the Catholic faith and the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. To focus on loving service to one’s God and neighbor. To discover and share one’s gifts and talents with the world.
- Formation of the Whole Person – To thoughtfully and intentionally integrate the fullness of human experience through spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical development.
- A World Affirming Perspective – To provide a spiritual dimension which sees creation as good. To promote a dialogue between faith and culture, which fosters the capacity for critical and original thinking. To appreciate the gifts of life.
- Diversity – To create and sustain a vibrant, inclusive community reflecting the expansive demographics and rich mixture of Southern California’s population.
- Scholarship – To build a culture of lifelong learning and inquiry through a rigorous and innovative college preparatory curriculum.
- Service – To be informed by a faith that does justice. To challenge our students to be “Men for and with Others.” To be in companionship with –and learning from – the disenfranchised, the marginalized and the most in need. To serve as Jesus did.
- Leadership – To develop young men who are compassionate, intellectually distinguished and morally courageous. To create students who become impactful “agents of change” for the world.
