St. Ignatius students receive a well-rounded education that helps them succeed in managing the demands of high school. Ongoing Graduate Support during high school is another reason why SIS alumni graduate from high school at more than twice the rate of their public school peers.
We believe that a strong middle school program is essential to success in high school, college, and beyond. Each year, many of our students will receive substantial if not full scholarships to the schools of their choice in recognition of how well prepared and deserving Saint Ignatius students are. The investment in these children pays off richly: 100% of SIS alumni graduated from high school last year, vs. 32.9% of their public school peers in Hunts Point.
High School Success
The embedded social and academic skills coupled with sustainable support equip St. Ignatius students with the tools necessary to accelerate their preparation for college.
