This article examines a Jesuit all boys college preparatory high school’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and how the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm (IPP) provided the school administrative team with guiding principles that inspired imaginative solutions allowing for in-person instruction throughout the majority of the crisis, which in turn offered much needed hope to the entire school community at a difficult time. The article begins with the context of the crisis for the community and then details the experience of the school going into the Fall of 2020 with attention to the process for putting pandemic go forward operating strategies in place. The article goes on to describe the IPP, its practical application to teaching and learning in a Jesuit institution and concludes with how that orientation manifested itself in the work of the administrative team as they navigated the crisis.
