Loyola Academy (LA) is managed and administered by the Andhra Jesuit Province, belonging to the Society of Jesus, an international Catholic Religious Order. Loyola Academy Degree and Post Graduate College as well as Loyola Academy Junior College were founded by Rev Fr T. Baliah SJ, in 1976 in Alwal, Secunderabad, Telangana, India.
After the immense success of Loyola Chennai the Andhra Jesuit Province decided to intensify its efforts and focus on setting up a world class academy at Hyderabad. Hence, the idea of Loyola Academy was born. The support received from Loyola Chennai alumni and other sources only strengthened the project.
An Effusion of Support
Many alumni, from Loyola Chennai, came forward to lend a hand in the making of this Academy. These influential alumni knew the importance of setting up a state-of-the-art college in Hyderabad and proactively participated in the inception of Loyola Academy.
Big Help From Unexpected Quarters
Noble causes attract help from others and the LA project was no exception. Education being the noblest of causes attracted many supporters who helped build the LA campus. These supporters from the government and non-government sectors shared a vision common with the Andhra Jesuit Province.
