Prepare for the future
by studying the past


Ghandi once said, “A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.”

Loyno’s history department seeks to do just that. In the pursuit of justice, we guide our students through an exploration of the past and all of its intricacies and nuances. Those higher levels of historical thought can only come through a scholarly search for understanding.
