University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy Reviews

UofD has been a wonderful experience for my son. I have been amazed at how inclusive the student body is, and how much my son has matured in such a short time span. Academics are rigorous, the campus is beautiful without being plush, and the sense of history here is wonderful. It is a Jesuit school, but religion is not unbearably pushed here; I think someone from any faith or lack therof would be comfortable. If I had any criticism at all (and this is more concern than criticism), it would be that in an age where many schools pad grades for college admissions, good grades are even that much harder to come by at UofD.

U of D is easily one of the best private schools in the state of Michigan. A challenging curriculum mixed with implementing Jesuit values makes it a very worthwhile experience. There is something for everyone, from sports to tons of clubs, and students are encouraged to become involved. The term "brotherhood" gets thrown around a lot, but it can truly be seen at U of D. It has prepared me for both college and life and it has had such a positive impact on me overall.
I am happy my sons attend the University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy. The administration is well organized, considerate and compassionate. Our sons did not have a smooth high school years, having lived outside of the USA twice during his four years and the school has been like "home" for our family and has provided consistency and understanding for our sons and our nomad life style. Our children have received an awesome education and gained great friends while attending Uof DJ
