A Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, Loyola began as a concerned response to a pressing need in Detroit and its surrounding communities.

With strong involvement of parents and staff at every step of the way, our graduates – truly Men for Others – demonstrate the level of academic, physical, social, and spiritual growth first envisioned by the school’s founders.


Loyola High School is one of 47 Jesuit secondary schools in the United States. Every Jesuit school, in collaboration with parents and guardians, challenges its student to go beyond academic excellence, to be reflective, to be committed to the service of faith and the promotion of justice: to be Men for Others.  All students are given the opportunity to experience Jesus Christ in an atmosphere that respects religious differences and promotes inter-religious dialogue.

The goal of Loyola High School is to graduate young men who are marked by the following characteristics:

  • Open to Growth
  • Intellectually Competent
  • Religious
  • Loving
  • Committed to Doing Justice
