Ignatian Scholars are students who have demonstrated leadership skills during their middle school years. This program is looking for outstanding students who have shown exceptional academic accomplishment and promise, fine character and leadership, significant involvement in extracurricular activities, a concern for their communities, and interest in the larger world.
The Ignatian Scholars Program is designed for students to participate in all four years. The general theme for each year is:
9th grade – Knowing Yourself
The first year of Ignatian Scholars focuses on students learning more about their interests and strengths. Scholars will explore the Grad at Grad and set goals to achieving these characteristics.
10th grade – Finding Your Passion
Second-year scholars will learn about a variety of academic and career opportunities. Through research and group projects, students will develop critical thinking and communication skills, while discovering their passions.
11th grade – Living Your Passion
Third-year scholars will be encouraged to take their area of interest (discovered during 10th grade) and delve more deeply into that field. Whether it be scientific research or community engagement, scholars will be mentored and encouraged to “live” their passions.
12th grade – Planning Your Future/Mentoring Others
Fourth-year scholars will be focused on transitioning from high school to college and finding the perfect college or university that will allow them to further their goals. Additionally, fourth-years will be involved in working with the first-year scholars in a peer mentorship role.
