True to the Saint Ignatius College Prep mission, our teachers are dedicated to our grad at grad goals: to make the students open to growth, intellectually competent, religious and loving, and committed to doing justice.

Saint Ignatius College Prep was recently recognized for the implementation of its iPad Program as an Apple Distinguished School for 2015 - 2017.

- Provide a central repository for curriculum materials that students may access anytime, anywhere, extending the learning environment beyond our school building.
- Provide powerful tools to students and teachers to create engaging and interactive learning environments.
- Empower students to engage in learning activities relevant to a rapidly changing digital world and promote 21st Century Skills, IPP, and NETS learning strategies.
