Loyola is a solid academic institution with well-rounded departments in academics, athletics, community service, arts/music, and religion. At Blakefield, graduates are taught to be "men for others" and the 154 year-old school has continuously stressed its importance to its students. The annual Turkey Bowl Game played each Thanksgiving at M&T Bank Stadium (Ravens) is one of the oldest Catholic football rivalries in the country and draws upwards of 13,000 certain years.
Loyola students are known within the city of Baltimore as typically well-mannered, polite, and generally pleasant. It's "sister schools" are Maryvale and Notre Dame Prep, and Loyola's biggest rival schools are Calvert Hall and Gilman based on size. Among the pride of Blakefield is its unparalleled swimming team, its strong sense of school spirit at sporting events, its highly regarded forensics team, and its nationally ranked lacrosse team.
Outside of Baltimore, Loyola is typically seen as another Jesuit school on par with St. Joseph's Prep in Philadelphia, Fairfield Prep in Connecticut, Gonzaga in Washington, and St. Ignatius in Chicago. Georgetown Prep in Bethesda and Regis High School in Manhattan are usually seen as a step above Loyola because of their exceptionally high admissions standards.
Loyola students typically go onto colleges such as Loyola College, Virginia Tech, University of Maryland, Delaware, US Naval Academy, Gettysburg, Elon, and Boston College.
*St. Paul's (or Gilman or BL) are probably the best, but Loyola is always tough and should be there too.
