As members of the Loyola Academy Class of 2019 finish their four-year chapter at the Wilmette school, a new one awaits them in the fall when most of them head off to college.

For many of the 493 students, that will include new challenges and experiences, like being away from their families for an extended period of time, being surrounded by people they don’t know and the rigors of secondary education, just to name a few.
