Loyola High School and the Social Science Department facilitate student analysis and understanding of social issues in historical context. We guide students to understand the scientific and interpretive methods for human behavior in societies. Our purpose is to have young men who understand the Jesuit value of empathy for others while seeking justice and becoming model citizens with a sense of civic duty.
