  • Attendance for Academic Courses

    Full attendance is necessary for the successful completion of a Summer Programs academic course.  Particularly for the three-week courses, students are expected to attend class everyday.  Please avoid signing up for classes on dates that may conflict with vacations and other summer camps.

    For credit-earning and advancement courses for current students, the Summer Program classes follow the school's attendance expectation that students may not miss more than 10% of classes (which would be 2 days of the June session). 
  • Cost

    For current students and incoming freshmen, the cost is $650 for most credit-earning and advancement courses. It's $300 for three week courses. A few exceptions are noted in the specific course descriptions.

    Athletic and co-curricular camp costs vary.  All costs and any discounted costs are reflected in the Campsite registration portal.  For example, one week of a camp is $155, but if the student registers for two or more qualifying athletic or co-curricular camps, there is a 10% discount that is automatically applied in the Campsite registration system.  Please see the specific camp descriptions and Campsite registration options for specific associated costs.

    Payment in full is due with registration materials for all courses and camps except Theology: On Holy Ground.  If extenuating circumstances arise, partial refunds for those who qualify will be available by contacting the Summer Programs Office.  Financial aid is available for for current Ignatius students.  Please contact Maureen Lonergan,, for more information.

    Saint Ignatius College Prep reserves the right to cancel a course or camp if minimum enrollment is not achieved.
  • Credit

    Most current student and incoming freshmen academic courses, with a few exceptions noted in the course descriptions, are non-credit courses.
  • Dress

    Students' clothing must be neat, clean, and appropriate for school.  Walking shorts are allowed.  All dress code regulations for athletic and co-curricular camps will be outlined on the first day of camp.
  • Location

    Saint Ignatius College Prep is located at 1076 W. Roosevelt Road, Chicago, IL.  The parking lot is located west of the main school doors at the corner of Roosevelt Road and Racine. Students enter and exit the school building through the Walsh Garden Entrance by the gate in between the light at Blue Island and the main school doors.
  • Transportation

    Saint Ignatius does not have a summer bus service. However, we sell reduced-fare student Ventra cards and distribute reduced-fare Metra letters. Located next to the University of Illinois - Chicago campus on Roosevelt Road, Saint Ignatius is easily accessible by several CTA bus routes that link the school to downtown train stations and several CTA rail lines. The Blue Line "L" is just a ten-minute walk. By car, the school is within a few minutes of the Dan Ryan, Kennedy, Eisenhower, and Stevenson Expressways.
