Although there is an SICP in California, the "sicker" one is in Chicago, Illinois.
Sure, the students have a strict dress code, and could tell other Ignatians from a mile away just by what they're wearing, but that doesn't mean they're awful/cultish people. Do not mistake all Ignatians for dumb kids who get all of their cash from their parents. Sure, some are like that, but many get jobs over the summer to save money for their college funds, to buy Kanye West T-shirts and matching sunglasses, or to buy tickets to Lollapalooza; a weekend concert which takes place every year in the first week of August.
These kids are hard workers, and on top of that, have a good fashion sense.
(well, a lot of them do.)
HINT: you can tell an ignatian from others if they've visited/heard of at least 20 different neighborhoods in Chicago.
StudentFromOtherSchoolOnTrain (either at Lasalle, Union, or Ogilvie): who are they?
Student 2: let's see here... Birkenstocks, northface, more presentable than the average person... they must be an Ignatian.
StudentFromOtherSchoolOnTrain: an Ignatian?
Student 2: yes. a person who comes from St. Ignatius College Prep.
One of the smartest schools in Chicago. Students come from all places in Chicago just to come here. The best College Prep school out there. Known for academics, less about sports, but really who cares about sports?
Academics > Football team, actually truth be told, our football team is probably one of the worst in the nation.
Student #1 from SICP: Did we win in football today?
Student #2 from SICP: Yes!
Student #1 from SICP: Really? I don't believe that St. Ignatius College Prep
could pull it off! That usually never HAPPENS!
A school in the heart of Chicago that prides itself on it's high standards when it comes to acceptance. Disregard that most of the families of the kids that go there are huge donors to the school and have a ton of legacy there, so that even if they get a fifty on the entrance exam there's no way they can't be accepted. Often regarded a "party school" it's wonderful if you're interested solely on doing copius amounts of pot and heroine and having sex with strangers at rich suburbenite kid's parties. Not so great if you're interested in surrounding yourself with people interested in learning and their futures. There are about 10 kids in each class that are, and they're not too popular. Just your run of the mill ridiculous catholic high school bullshit.
Cathy: St. Ignatius College Prep! you must be pretty smart to be going there!
Kevin: Haha yeah, it's pretty chill, I got herpes there though from this one chick.
A high school lying on the outskirts of downtown Chicago. Though students typically travel in from affluent suburbs, they like to think going to Ignatius gives them "street-cred" and makes them "city-smart," which it most certainly does not. While these sheltered students try to shed the soft, pampered reputation they have received, the fact remains that there are chandeliers in the cafeteria and the buildings are nicer than many on collegiate campuses.more...
Try as they might, no Ignatius athletic teams seem to be able to have consistent success. Though their parents always by their children top-of-the-line equipment, athleticism is rare and has lead to Ignatius' reputation as a"guaranteed win." This is evident in the annual Fenwick/Ignatius football game where Ignatius will usually lose by a deficit of at least 35 points. Even as Ignatius boasts itself as an "academic powerhouse," their Math and Science teams consistently prove inferior to other prep schools, including bitter rival Fenwick, who also outshines them on standardized test scores.
Known for having below average-looking women, the social scene is also lacking. A typical weekend for any Ignatius student usually consists of stealing Bacardi Razz or Malibu Rum from one's parents and sneaking it into a party in a water bottle. After each consuming the equivalent of two or three shots, students generally become intoxicated and resort to bizarre homoerotic behavior including, but not limited to: applying body glitter, d...
