As an independent high school, it is a partnership of students, staff, parents, the community, the Archdiocese of Detroit, and the Jesuits of the Detroit Province.Loyola strives to prepare every student for the next stage of his formal education beyond high school and equips him with the skills and values needed to live responsibly and productively. Although a Catholic high school, Loyola welcomes students of all faiths who understand its philosophy and who are willing to be guided by and contribute to it. Rooted in the Jesuit philosophy of education that aims to shape and develop the entire person, Loyola fosters self-discipline, reflection, and service to others.Loyola High School is one of 57 Jesuit secondary schools in the United States. Every Jesuit school, in collaboration with parents and guardians, challenges its students 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. Loyola aims to graduate young men who are open to growth, intellectually competent, religious, loving, and committed to doing justice.HistoryIn the early 1990s, the Detroit Board of Education proposed starting several all-male academies in an attempt to address the alarmingly high dropout rate of high school males. However, a U.S. District Court ruled that the plan violated the Michigan Constitution. Then Cardinal Adam Maida, recognizing that the Board’s plan had merit, contacted Fr. Joseph Daoust, Provincial superior of the Detroit Province Jesuits, to discuss taking on this project. A year-long feasibility study conducted by Jesuit Fr. Kenneth Styles concluded that a school of this type was needed and could be conducted on a non-public basis. The Archdiocese and the Jesuits decided to jointly sponsor the school, the only such arrangement in the country.
