U of D Jesuit High School to hold open house Nov. 6

Providing the best possible education is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child. The University of Detroit Jesuit High School will hold an open house from noon to 4 p.m. Nov. 6 for perspective students and their families to visit and learn more about the school.

U of D Jesuit is a Catholic, all-boys, college prep high school with a proud history of academic excellence and a commitment to faith and service. The school’s reputation draws a student body from all over the metropolitan Detroit area.

“We provide a top notch education that prepares students for college and for life,” said Director of Admissions Atif Lodhi. “Beyond the classroom, our students learn to respect and support each other, forming bonds that last a lifetime.”

A challenging curriculum sets the stage for future success. Many students who have gone on to attend the finest universities in the nation credit the skills they learned at U of D Jesuit, including note taking, test taking, and time management, for helping them to excel in college.

U of D Jesuit offers 14 varsity sports for student athletes as well as 40 different clubs, so students can pursue a variety of interests.

Last year, the school dispersed $1.6 million in financial aid. In fact, 34 percent of students receive some sort of aid based on merit scholarships or financial need.

In many families, U of D Jesuit has become a multi-generational tradition, something that speaks volumes about the school’s reputation, Lodhi said.

“We have more than 14,000 proud alums who want their own children and grandchildren to enjoy that same opportunity,” Lodhi said.

Placement tests for the Class of 2016 are held in November and December. Students are encouraged to apply early as there is often a waiting list to enroll. Families unable to attend the open house may schedule a private tour by contacting the Admissions Department at 313-862-5400. Go to www.uofdjesuit.org for more information.
