Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the the size of Loyola's student body?

It is approximately 1270+.

Is there a fee to apply to Loyola?

Yes, a one-time, non-refundable fee of $75.00 is required, payable by credit card within the secure site managing the online application process.

What is Loyola looking for in an applicant?

The Admissions Committee is looking at a variety of factors including academic achievement, spiritual formation, and extracurricular involvement/community engagement to evaluate a student’s demonstrated ability to succeed in a well-balanced college preparatory environment. There is no policy with regard to a minimum G.P.A. or standardized test score. In addition, applicants should display positive relationships with peers and teachers as well as a commitment to active participation in extracurricular activities in or outside of school and/or involvement in their community.

Does Loyola require HSPT exams?

Yes. Entering 9th grade applicants must take the HSPT Exam. Transfer students do not complete a standardized test for admissions.

Where do I take the HSPT exams?

When you apply online, you have an option to register for the HSPT Exam at Loyola High School on either Saturday, January 13, 2024 or January 20, 2024. You may take the test only once at Loyola. If these dates conflict with your schedule, or you are already registered to take the HSPT exam at another high school, you do not need to take the exam at Loyola. In this case, you must have your scores forwarded to Loyola to complete your application.

How can I apply?

Applications are available online at www.loyolahs.edu/admissions/apply typically in late September for entering 9th grade applicants and mid-February for 10th and 11th grade transfer applicants.

Does Loyola accept international students?

Loyola does not accept international students.

When may I visit Loyola's campus?

Loyola hosts an annual Open House which will take place on Sunday, December 3, 2023. Due to the number of inquiries received each year, Loyola does not offer individual tours for prospective freshmen; however, the campus is open for various events, especially athletic contests, we encourage you to walk the campus and speak with any parents or students that are on campus. We are trying to schedule some smaller events to invite families to campus to hear from our admissions team. If you complete an “Inquiry” form you will be entered into our system to receive new information and updates by email.

Are additional recommendations permitted in the application process?

There is no need to submit additional letters of recommendation. However, you have an opportunity to submit a maximum of two additional recommendations on behalf of a student. The recommendation will become part of our confidential admissions files, for use only by the Admissions Committee. Again, it will not become part of any permanent record and parents and applicants will not have access to these recommendations.

When is my admission application to Loyola complete?

All applicants are able to track the status of their file each time they log into their user account in the online application.
