Can I afford it?
U of D Jesuit is committed to providing an affordable education to all qualified students in the Metro Detroit area. Our pledge is to provide tuition assistance to any family showing financial need. Currently, we provide financial assistance to 34% of the 900+ students in attendance. This amounts to more than $2.3 million in tuition reduction for those families. As long as your son is willing and able to do the work required, we will not let finances be a deterrent to enrollment.
Interested students are encouraged to complete their admission file by the end of December, including the High School Placement Test. Completed application files will be evaluated starting January 2, 2019. Notification of acceptance will occur by the end of January.
U of D Jesuit was founded on the 470-year-old Jesuit educational goal of forming men for others for the Greater Glory of God. Our graduates are leaders in their communities; they strive to be competent, religious, loving, open to growth and committed to justice.
When you meet our graduates, you will find that they are leaders: in the business world, in the arts, in religious life, in politics, in the sciences and technology, in sports, and especially in the community. It is a goal of our school and of Jesuit education to prepare our young men to be leaders - to engage the world, not just to observe it.
As you encounter our students and graduates, you see that they are well rounded and confident as they strive for the "magis", that is excellence in all things. This is part of the Jesuit goal of "cura personalis," the formation of the whole person: mind, spirit and body. This is what sets us apart from other schools.
A U of D Jesuit graduate has learned to feel compassion for the victims of injustice and has a sense of urgency to implement societal changes which will assist such victims in protecting their rights and human dignity. He is involved in public service and feels an obligation as a Christian to participate in the building of a humane, civic and ecclesial community in a way that respects the pluralism of that community.
We offer this kind of education because we want our students to do well, but also to make a difference in their world.
