Located in the heart of southeast Portland, St. Ignatius School is a caring, joyful and connected community of families and professional educators that work together. We make our Catholic values of service, inclusivity, and faith a part of our children’s everyday lives as we strive to help each child live our expectations: Eager Minds, Passionate Hearts, Enthusiastic Spirits, Brilliant Futures. Formed by Ignatian spirituality and the charism of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, this small school is a jewel in the only Jesuit parish in Oregon. We warmly welcome your inquiries.
Catholic education undertakes formation of the whole human person. Nowhere does this happen with more care and intention than at our own small school. If there is a child in your life who you would love to see have a unique and excellent educational experience in a small community, we have a few spots for new students for the 2019-2020 school year. If you or anyone you know is interested in learning more about St. Ignatius School, please call the office at 503.774.5533 and we will be happy to schedule a tour and answer any questions.
Our mission statement:
We, the community of St. Ignatius School, in the tradition of Mother Marie Rose and St. Ignatius Loyola, provide a faith centered Catholic education guiding God's children toward building a just and compassionate world.
