Loyola High School of Detroit, a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, nurtures a culture of hope and academic success for young men challenged by an urban environment and prepares them to be men of Christian love, justice, and service who act with integrity, compassion, and courage


Loyola High School is one of 50 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.
