Financial Aid and Diversity
Loyola Academy has long been committed to providing a Jesuit education to a broad range of students from diverse economic backgrounds. We draw students from over eighty Chicago area zip codes.
Subject to the outcome of the admissions process, we want your child to be a part of the tradition of this vibrant school. It is important, therefore, to assure you that Loyola Academy will underwrite any demonstrated financial need through our tuition assistance program.
This school year Loyola Academy is awarding almost $4 million in scholarships based on financial need. The recipients of these awards are as diverse as our student body. There is no standard formula for determining an award. Each case is considered individually. We have made awards to families with no means of support and to families with six figure incomes. The average award this year was $6,800. The size of the awards have varied from $1,000 to full tuition. Where our recipients live is equally varied. They live in Chicago and over twenty-five suburbs including Niles, Evanston, Highland Park, Glenview, Park Ridge, Wilmette and Winnetka, to name a few.
More information on Loyola's Financial Aid Program is available in our Financial Aid FAQs.
