Faculty and Staff


St. Ignatius Catholic School and St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy is blessed to have a talented, faith-filled, and dynamic faculty and staff dedicated to the vision and mission of our school. Whether in the classroom or an office, working at St. Ignatius is more than a job; it is a grace-filled calling and vocation to serve the students, staff, families, greater community, and the Church entrusted to us by God.

Each faculty and staff member takes the Oath of Fidelity to the Magisterium at an all-school Mass at the beginning of the academic year, as well as participates in both professional and spiritual formation opportunities throughout the year.
