Greetings from the office of Graduate Support!

In tune with the overall mission to break the cycle of poverty through education, here at Loyola, we believe our alumni need and deserve support throughout their high school careers and beyond. Our mission is not complete until our middle school graduates have made it to and through their best-fit secondary options. Therefore, we provide them with spiritual, emotional, social, academic and financial support at the high school level.

Our Graduate Support Program ensures that Loyola Men (and their families) are prepared to navigate the admissions and financial aid processes of prestigious, college preparatory high schools throughout the Greater St. Louis region. Even more, once in attendance of these high schools, we maintain an ongoing relationship with students, their families and the necessary faculty and staff, in an effort to make sure that each Loyola graduate is burgeoning to the best of his ability. The ultimate goal is to have each alumnus discover his best-fit, post-secondary option and live a productive life of service and leadership through the use of his God-given talents.

In addition to advocating for our alumni, we also expand our mission and experience by collaborating with other local Nativity-Miguel Network programs. As a result of this collaboration, we provide a Summer Scholars program that primes high school juniors and seniors for the college admissions process, as well as free ACT Prep courses, college tours and other relevant events that will help better prepare our alumni for their experiences beyond middle and high school.

As always, it’s a great day to be a Loyola Man!
