About

Today, we celebrate our first graduating class from The Welsh Academy. We hope you'll join our celebrations and participate in our Welsh Academy Day of GRADitude!

The Welsh Academy, which began in the 1990s as a dream of then-Saint Ignatius President Rev. Robert J. Welsh, S.J. ’54. Today is a historic day and a reminder of the legacy of Fr. Welsh. Through the dedication and commitment of our Welsh team, the collaboration with our Welsh families, and the support of the Saint Ignatius community, the academy has come a long way since we opened our doors in 2019.

We depend on the generosity of our greater community to provide our students with an academically challenging and supportive environment that is tuition free for our families. Your support will help us to expand upon the efforts of our first three years and allow us to serve even more families in Cleveland – families who seek a unique educational opportunity for their sons, which is often beyond their reach, through no fault of their own. Your contributions will help offset the annual expenses of The Welsh Academy by primarily supporting our teachers and students, transportation costs, and expenses connected with our extended day.

Thank you for your consideration. Your support is transformational!

Please call the Advancement Office if you have any questions or would like to make your gift over the phone at 216-634-8805.

​From 2019 to 2022

These 22 young men were the first to say yes to our school, our mission, and the dream of Fr. Robert J. Welsh, S.J. '54, for whom our school is named. Congratulations to our students, faculty, and staff who have worked so hard to get to where we are today.

First Class, Full Circle

As we prepare to graduate our inaugural class of students, the spring cover story for Saint Ignatius Magazine takes a look at how this all came to be. Read how Fr. Welsh's dream was made real--and, in a way, how Saint Ignatius High School has come full circle.
