University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy Reviews

275 reviews
All Categories
Whilst the academic reputation of U of D Jesuit is still commendable, many times students of color, low economic status, irreligious students and students of the LGBT community feels sidelined and often express sentiments of not truly belonging. The school prides itself on being "United by Diversity", yet still struggles to have conversations about race, gender, sexuality, religion and politics that don't align with their crystal clear agendas. Wile the school does try to blanketly include everyone, many times students reject those advancements. The students present an often toxic culture of homophobia, classism, sexism and xenophobia under the guise of brotherhood the school so aggressively emphasizes. In short, yes the school is an academic powerhouse with some of the most winningest sports teams in the city of Detroit, yet if you're not a straight, white Catholic from Royal Oak, you're as good as invisible.

I enjoy U of D because of all the opportunities the school has to offer. The excellent academics speak for themselves, but the numerous clubs that are offered enable students to experience all sorts of activities that they may not be able to experience anywhere else. Every student has the opportunity to try numerous clubs and find their niche and place where they are most able to excel and lead.
Faculty, staff and other students embrace each new student and welcome them as a new member of their family. They are eager and excited to show each student what it means to be a brother. In this brotherhood, no matter what you are involved in, the other brothers support and encourage you to succeed. You can be a star on the basketball court, or a drama/theatre superstar or anywhere in between, and your brothers will support what you do. It is a great place to learn, serve and grow.
Awesome school! The location, and access to resources was the best part of my schooling. Being able to attend this school has put me in control of my future and has led me to success in the next chapter of my educational journey. I am prepared and confident in myself from concepts that I've learned while attending this school.
