At St. Ignatius Catholic School and Chesterton Academy, we focus on forming the whole person—mind, body, and soul— so our students are inspired to lead integrated lives that glorify God. The athletics program at St. Ignatius plays a role in that development and leading our students to true human flourishing. St. Ignatius offers athletics for grades 5-12, as well as athletics and sports programming for younger students.

“Give thanks to God for the gift of sport, in which the human person exercises his body, intellect, and will, recognizing these abilities as so many gifts of his Creator.”  – St. John Paul II
