In Detroit High School, Young Men Exceed Expectations

Previous Next

Loyola High School in Detroit was founded in the early 1990s to address the city’s soaring drop-out rate among young, black males. Today, the Catholic Jesuit school, which serves teens in a lower-income part of Detroit’s northwest side, graduates 100 percent of its students. And every student in the past few years of graduating classes has been admitted into a two- or four-year college. Here & Now’s Peter O’Dowd pays a visit to the school and speaks with some students.
