Loyola Academy of St. Louis is a Jesuit middle school for boys located in the Grand Center neighborhood. Founded in 1999 by the Jesuits, the school serves boys who have the potential for college preparatory work, but whose progress may be impeded by economic or social circumstances. Loyola Academy offers a rigorous curriculum including middle school operations, Encore (a mandatory after-school enrichment program), and a graduate support system, which follows students through all four years of high school. In the Ignation tradition, the school inspires its students to lives of service and leadership through the use of their God-given talents.
