One of the unique aspects of a Loyola education is that all juniors and seniors participate in our Loyola Work Experience Program. Started in 2003, this program allows our students to spend one day per week in the offices of our program partners where they gain practical, real-world work experience that helps them find success beyond their academic studies. Loyola currently has program partners from many industries and companies such as: Ford Motor Company, William H. Beaumont Health System, IHS Markit and DTE Energy.
This program also allows Loyola High School to maintain tuition levels at a fraction of other private schools in the metro Detroit area. In addition to the financial assistance this program provides to the school and its students, it yields real world benefits for our young men. Working in a business environment, Loyola students acquire desirable job experience and marketable skills, develop a network of business contacts, refine a strong work ethic and better understand the expectations of future employers.
Working with the young men from Loyola has definitely been a win-win. Watching them grow and mature and become service-oriented young men is uplifting. Beaumont Health is grateful for the service they provide and proud to be a supporter of this program for several years.

Loyola’s program has been a wonderful experience. It’s a well-run program with administrators and staff at the school who genuinely care – not only about the performance of the participants but also about the development of these young men to prepare them for their paths in life wherever that takes them.
