An Open Letter to St. Ignatius College Preparatory
Justin Alexander

Thank you Justin for your letter. My children graduated from SI, and they had similar experiences to yours. Frankly, I’m disgusted.

When my wife and I chose SI, I thought and expected that our children would receive the same excellent treatment that I received at U of Detroit Jesuit High School (USJHS) where African-American students comprised 30% of the student body. I was so sorry to discover that African-American students are treated so poorly at SI.

I regret sending my children there, and I apologize for the negative impact that SI had on their psyches and self-image.
