Loyola Academy (Chicago) is a Jesuit high school located in the United States in Wilmette, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago). It is located in the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus and was founded in 1909. The current President of Loyola Academy is Fr. Ted Munz, S.J. It is also the largest Jesuit high school in America, with over 2,000 students from more than 80 different zip codes throughout the Chicago area.

In 1994, Loyola Academy merged with Saint Louise de Marillac High School, an all girls high school from Northfield, Illinois, and became a co-educational school. In 2003, Loyola Academy opened a new 60-acre campus in Glenview, Illinois. The property now houses several athletic fields for lacrosse, baseball, softball, and soccer, a cross country path, and a wetland preserve area that has been used as a natural laboratory for science classes.

During much of its history, Loyola Academy maintained a strict disciplinary program. Under the strict disciplinary guidelines of the Jesuits, students were required to wear Academy blazers and ties, maintain silence when moving between classes, attend weekly Mass on campus, and address their professors as either "sir" or "Father."

An interesting fact about Loyola Academy is that it is one of only three high schools in the Chicago area to offer Ancient Greek as a language course. Loyola Academy is also very active in forensics, Scholastic Bowl, and Science Olympiad competitions.
