Message from the President

Welcome to Loyola High School of Los Angeles!

When I look out at Loyola, I see many different high schools. There is the one where debaters excel, athletes compete and writers create as well as the one where artists design, scientists analyze and thespians act. It is the one where boys become men and men become brothers.

That is the beauty of Loyola. There is a Loyola for each and every one of our current and future Cubs. I know that, not only as president of this great high school, but as an alumnus who was deeply involved in the theatre program, with a father that was a star debater and two brothers interested in tennis and The Loyalist.

Just as my family goes back generations, so do the families of many of our 16,000-strong alumni, adding to Loyola High School’s rich 153-year history. Loyola’s legacy is integral to its future as is our new generation of students. The 21-acre campus is ready for these new Cubs, with a phenomenal faculty and administration, CIF athletic teams, a renowned drama program, award-winning publications, a nationally recognized community service program and state-of-the-art facilities for any academic pursuit.

The total, though, is the sum of its parts. Most importantly Loyola forms young men into the people they were created by God to be–men of conscience and character who know how to use their gifts and talents to change the world. Join us in our journey as we help lead Los Angeles into the future.
