Loyola High School Endowment Provides for Future
By Barbara Glover
Loyola High School, an all-male school in Detroit, has been educating and serving urban young men in underserved communities for 26 years. Atif Lodhi, Loyola Marketing and Communications Director, smiles joyfully and summarizes their mission: “To become men for others.” Loyola’s program of faith formation, combined with rigorous academics, helps each student transform into a confident young man, with a self-defined path forward and skills to become productive members of their communities and society at large.The high school has small class sizes of 12-13 students, internship programs with multinational companies, senior year service projects, and a 100% university acceptance rate over the last nine years. The curriculum comes from a unique partnership between the Archdiocese of Detroit and The Jesuits, emphasizing faith in action.
Their faith formation element includes: theology classes, daily prayer, annual retreats, and field trips to Catholic organizations like the Solanus Casey Center. These programs make Loyola High School a unique and special place in the lives of the students it serves.
“Loyola is a hidden gem on the Northwest side of Detroit. We have had the pleasure of molding the minds of some of the world’s future leaders. As a cornerstone in this community, Loyola represents the progressive spirit and revitalization of the city of Detroit,” Principal Wyatt Jones III shares.
Last year, the high school decided to set up an endowment fund administered by the Catholic Foundation. Among Loyola’s many opportunities for giving, this permanent endowment fund holds its principal in perpetuity, grows, and makes an annual distribution for the operation and mission of the school, for generations to come.
Please join the Catholic Foundation in supporting the vital mission and programs at Loyola High School by contributing to their endowment fund. Your supporthelps Loyola High School reach an even greater number of young men formed for service to others. By helping educate the next generation, you assure a promising future for our Catholic community.
