Jesuit Identity / Mission

Our Mission in Detroit

In 1976, after a process of consultation and discernment, U of D Jesuit decided to remain within the city of Detroit, at our current location on South Cambridge. With this decision, the school made a conscious choice committing itself to diversity (racial, religious and socio-economic) and to serving the entire metropolitan region. Our Strategic Plan recognizes, as part of our Jesuit mission, our commitment to the poor, to diversity, and to our home in Detroit.

The Mission Statement of U of D Jesuit

University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy is committed to providing the highest quality Jesuit Catholic college preparatory education for young men throughout metropolitan Detroit. University of Detroit Jesuit, in collaboration with parents, will challenge its students to go beyond academic excellence, to be reflective, to be committed to the service of faith and promotion of justice, and to be “Men for Others.”
