Let me be the first to extend a welcome to the digital world of Saint Ignatius College
Prep! I am very excited about our redesigned website and the addition of the SICP
App for your smart phone and IPad. We are the first Jesuit high school to take the
app plunge and our initial feedback has been very positive. I hope you will find
these resources to be informative and inspiring. I especially encourage you to visit
our website at www.ignatius.org with some frequency; we consistently strive to showcase
our talented students and our beautiful campus with timely photographs.
I have begun my second year here at Saint Ignatius and continue to enjoy this great
mission started nearly 150 years ago by Fr. Arnold Damen and the Society of Jesus.
Our student body is 1384 strong and come to us from seven counties and two states.
We are faithful stewards of the educational mission given by Jesus Christ to His
disciples when He told them: “Go and make disciples of all nations.” We are part
of the great worldwide network of Jesuit schools reaching back many centuries with
a proven course of study.
Here at Saint Ignatius College Prep we strive to cultivate leaders for the Church
and the City. I think I have one of the best jobs in Chicago, because I get to tell
people about our amazing students and the talented faculty and staff who form this
great community and educational project. So whether you are an alum, parent, prospective
student, or an old or new friend of the school, I invite you get to know us better.
We have been around from the early days of Chicago and look forward to a bright
future. God bless you!
