Loyola Academy

Jesuit-Influenced Middle School Education
Loyola Academy offers a distinctive opportunity for rigorous learning and healthy development in an environment permeated by Catholic faith and values guided by Ignatian pedagogy.

Loyola Academy students share an inclusive community that embraces their unique interests, strengths and needs as they mature through middle school. Our program prepares students intellectually, spiritually and socially. Approximately 90 middle school students at Loyola Academy are encouraged to take ownership of their education. Leadership, responsibility and respect for one another are modeled for students within the context of the daily life of our Catholic school. Over their three years in middle school, students become prepared to meet the academic challenges of high school, with an awareness of the needs of society and a commitment to Christian, Jesuit-influenced beliefs and values. Extended day options involving sports, art, music, and other activities create a “home away from home” atmosphere at our school in Brighton, MA. All of this means our students are known and loved throughout their time in Loyola Academy.

Students are engaged in a thoughtful curriculum taught by exceptionally qualified teachers, all of whom are required to have a master’s degree in education. As part of a laboratory school designation with the prestigious Lynch School of Education and Human Development at Boston College, the faculty collaborates with professors and student teachers. State-of-the art facilities and technology support cutting-edge approaches to teaching and learning in the humanities, the arts, and the sciences. The curriculum explores innovative ideas against the backdrop of the Catholic intellectual tradition.
