Growing, Learning, Thriving
St. Ignatius Catholic School is a pre-K-8th grade school modeled in the Ignatian tradition of education with a focus on academic excellence, faith formation, social justice and service and strength of community. The faculty and staff at St. Ignatius strive to help each child seek the MAGIS-the more— by recognizing the unique gifts and talents of each individual and helping strengthen those God-given abilities so that they can become agents of goodness and change in the world. We are committed to developing the whole child– heart, mind, body and soul.
In the Ignatian tradition, quality teaching, critical thinking, and rigorous academic standards and scholarship are the cornerstone to growing each child to their highest potential. We respect the individuality of each child, and we are committed to addressing the academic challenges and strengths of each student. Our small class sizes provide increased individual attention, student-teacher interaction and individualized learning opportunities.
We offer a rich and vibrant PreK-8 Catholic education that blends traditional academic course work with a sincere and material commitment to enrichment curriculum in the arts, music and foreign language.
Faith formation is essential to the true development of the whole child. At St. Ignatius, we believe that student growth flourishes in an environment where prayer, faith and moral contemplation are encouraged and supported. Rather than avoiding issues of morality and faith, we believe it is our privilege and responsibility to encourage prayer, thoughtful reflection and responsible action on moral and ethical issues to create agents of change for our future.
SOCIAL JUSTICE/ SERVICE
In the Ignatian tradition, we strive to grow students who make concrete actions of love and service a priority in everyday life, and who see the importance in discovering the work that Christ calls each one of them to do. Students are engaged in a process of exploring the distinctive and constructive ways in which their knowledge and talents will best serve society. All students put their faith into action through participation in age appropriate hands-on service to the Treasure Valley community.
STRENGTH OF COMMUNITY
St. Ignatius Catholic School is enveloped in the strength and commitment of the greater community of Holy Apostle Catholic Church. At St. Ignatius Catholic School, the growth of our students is a cooperative and collaborative effort by and among families, the school community and the church. It is within this community of love and support that students are able to begin discovering their own sense of identity within the community and begin to share their own gifts and talents for the benefit of others. Through active participation, students learn to take increasing responsibility for the betterment of their communities and assume active and critical leadership roles in their world.
