About St. Ignatius Catholic School

St. Ignatius Catholic School is located on the beautiful Caribbean Island of Grand Cayman. The school was established in 1971 and moved to its present site on Walker’s Road soon after. The present school houses 700 students and staff from many different countries. Students can begin their St. Ignatius education in Nursery, and proceed all the way through to Year 13.

Mission Statement...

St. Ignatius Catholic School’s mission is to nurture the spiritual, academic, social and personal development of every student in our care in a supportive Catholic atmosphere, which welcomes and embraces students of all denominations.

A school at the heart of a community...

St. Ignatius Catholic School shares a campus with St. Ignatius Church and is located along Walkers Road on the outskirts of George Town. The school is renowned for its friendly, caring atmosphere in which the personal, social and academic needs of each individual are nurtured within the context of the Catholic faith.

A school recognised for excellence in teaching and learning...

As an independent, co-educational, comprehensive school, we accept students from Nursery to 13 (ages 3+ to 18) across a wide ability range. Our school curriculum offers British-based qualifications while incorporating a number of American tests to provide maximum flexibility for graduating students. With a reputation for academic excellence spearheaded by our professional and dedicated staff, students are provided with a high standard of education in a multi-faceted and challenging learning environment which encourages the creative arts and physical exercise, as well as challenging the students intellectually.

A school that places the student at the centre of all endeavours...

The St. Ignatius experience is so much more than lessons in a classroom. Our focus is on the development of the whole child. Students are offered numerous opportunities for self-enrichment and personal and spiritual growth. By fostering a strong sense of self-worth, we value each member of the St. Ignatius community, promoting high standards of achievement and behaviour within a disciplined, structured and supportive environment.

Faith...

We welcome students from all religious denominations and backgrounds, fostering an atmosphere of tolerance and support irrespective of race, gender, nationality or belief. The focus of our school life at St. Ignatius revolves around our Catholic faith. Without exception, every child is expected to participate fully in the religious life of the school. By placing the spiritual development of each student within the context of the Catholic faith and the liturgical year, we provide numerous opportunities for self-enrichment and personal growth. As the only Catholic School in Cayman, we practise faith in action; empowering students to explore their spirituality in a dynamic, stimulating and open-minded environment.

Our Catholic Heritage...

St. Ignatius School falls under the auspices of the local parish and, in turn, under the governance of the Archbishop of Detroit, the Pope’s special delegate entrusted to care for the spiritual needs of the parish. Ours is a thriving and fast-growing church community, declared ‘Missio Sui Iuris’ (or a Mission Church in its own right) by Rome in July 2000 in the hope of one day becoming a diocese.

Ethos and Values...

Our aim is to raise caring students who possess high moral standards and a healthy respect for others. We believe that experience is the best teacher of all, so whether it is raising money for charity through Key Club activities, our annual Lenten fast or going on a working visit to an orphanage in Jamaica, we expect all of our students to make a positive contribution to the world around them, and by doing so, to understand more about themselves. Our school chaplain works alongside the students, offering support and guidance when required.

Partnership With Parents / Communication With Home...

The quality of our relationships with students and their families is important to us and we value the partnership between home and school. By creating close working relationships, we are able to support the needs of every student in our care. Our open door policy means that parents are always welcome to make an appointment to visit and see the school in action. Similarly, we hope that parents will contact us immediately to discuss any concerns they may have regarding their child’s schooling.
