Loyola High School Detroit, a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition has opened a search for its next President who would assume the position July 1, 2019.
Loyola High School Detroit is an all-male school located in Detroit, Michigan. The school opened in 1993 as a joint venture between the Archdiocese of Detroit and the Society of Jesus with the intent to address the pressing need for urban male education in Detroit and its surrounding communities. With the strong involvement of parents and staff at every step of the way, it aims to produce graduates who are truly “men for others” and who demonstrate the level of academic, physical, social and spiritual growth envisioned in the school's mission. Loyola seeks to graduate young men who are prepared for the next stage of formal education—college, university, or a skilled trades program—and who will give back to the community as “men for others”.
Now entering its 26th year, Loyola has a proven track record of success, including 8 straight years of 100% college acceptance by our graduating class.
The President of Loyola High School Detroit will serve as the chief executive officer of the school. The President works with the Board of Directors to develop policies and has overall responsibility for the implementation of those policies, for the management of Loyola and for providing leadership to its educational mission and values consistent with the Roman Catholic faith and the Society of Jesus.
