Established in 2011, Loyola Academy is an on-campus, tuition-free college preparatory program for boys entering sixth grade who demonstrate substantial academic promise as well as verified financial need. The average yearly income for a student's family is $22,500.
Loyola Academy represents the uniquely Jesuit concept of magis — or more. Brophy's leadership recognized that Brophy could do more to educate boys who, because of family circumstances, might never have the opportunity for a college preparatory education. With the support of the entire community, Brophy developed Loyola Academy, an all-encompassing program that shepherds these students through a rigorous and supportive middle school experience, preparing them for Brophy and, ultimately, for college. Most graduates go on to become first-generation college students.
In May 2022, the fifth class of scholars graduated from Brophy, having successfully made their way through the seven-year program. Also of note, the inaugural Loyola Academy Class of 2018 graduated from college this spring (2022). AMDG
