GRADING SCALE

Please view grading scale here.

BLOCK SCHEDULE

Loyola’s modified block schedule provides flexibility for inside and outside of the classroom. Class period length is 90 minutes, and classes meet every other day for four days of the five day week. One day is reserved for traditional, 50-minute periods. Print and/or view the bell schedule here.

Opportunities abound for students to be exposed to more critical thinking skills and a variety of teaching techniques in the classroom, to have time built into the day for activities and club meetings, to focus on time management skills and to be exposed to a system similar to most colleges. The built-in activity block is designed to provide more effective support for the developmental needs of students.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

A student attending Loyola College Prep for four years is expected to fulfill the Louisiana Board of Regents/TOPS Core Curriculum Requirements, which exceed the minimum state standards for graduation. Louisiana Core 4 Curriculum requirements will be met by all Loyola students.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

One of the pillars of a Catholic education is answering the call to service. Loyola students work to serve those in our community and bring the love of Christ to the most vulnerable through programs such as FAiTH (Flyers Aiding the Hungry) who hosts that provides food and toys to local families during the Christmas season.

Students are required to earn 25 hours of community service each year at Loyola for a total of 100 hours upon graduation. Many students surpass the number by the end of their senior year.

CLASS RANKING

Loyola College Prep is part of a growing number of high schools that do not publish a class rank for students.

For college scholarships and applications, a school profile is sent along with a letter detailing a six semester GPA distribution chart to show the competitive nature of the class and where students fall in comparison to their classmates regarding GPA.
