About Us

Welcome from the President

Dear Friends,

Our Saint Ignatius College Prep community welcomes you to our digital world. While a website will never replace the energy of our real world, we hope that you will find these resources informative, inspiring, and helpful. As you explore our website, you will see that we are a community dedicated to educating the “whole person” – academically, spiritually, and formationally. Please visit our website frequently to see updates and photos of our student accomplishments, calendared events, and unique campus.

Our student body is over 1,400 strong and come to us daily from seven counties and three states. We are faithful stewards of an educational mission given by Jesus Christ to his disciples when He told them “Go and teach all nations.” We are part of the great worldwide network of Jesuit schools established by St. Ignatius of Loyola, reaching back to the 16th century with a proven course of study. Our founder, Fr. Arnold Damen, SJ, arrived in Chicago as a missionary in the 19th century to carry on a Jesuit mission. 

Here at Saint Ignatius College Prep, we strive to cultivate leaders for the Church and the City. So whether you are an alum, parent, prospective student, or an old or new friend, we want you to get to know us better. Our future will be strong with your presence and support. 

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam

John J. Chandler
