The Sheridan Scholars program was announced at the Cashbah Bicentennial Ball on Saturday, April 7, 2018. Funded by a $1 million lead gift from Aja and Pat Stokes, this $1.2 million program creates four fully-endowed scholarships to allow graduates of Loyola Academy to attend SLUH.
The Sheridan Scholars program is named in honor of Fr. Paul Sheridan, who served as SLUH President from 1996 until 2005. Loyola Academy was founded under his leadership in 1999.
Additional funding for the Sheridan Scholars program is provided by generous gifts from Sandra and Pat McNamee '78, Louise and Jerry McNeive '60, and Michele and John Stephens '77.
About Loyola Academy
Loyola Academy of St. Louis is a Jesuit middle school for boys located in the Grand Center neighborhood. Founded in 1999 by the Jesuits, the school serves boys who have the potential for college preparatory work, but whose progress may be impeded by economic or social circumstances. Loyola Academy offers a rigorous curriculum including middle school operations, Encore (a mandatory after-school enrichment program), and a graduate support system, which follows students through all four years of high school. In the Ignatian tradition, the school inspires its students to lives of service and leadership through the use of their God-given talents.
