The Foley Family

The “Foley Family” refers to the engaging and caring community that encompasses Bishop Foley Catholic. It is the partnership between students, families, teachers, advisors, alumni, coaches, and administrators who work together to prepare our students to succeed in all aspects of their lives. BFC is more than a college preparatory school. We provide a Catholic education in a Christ-centered environment that emphasizes academic excellence to develop the whole person in mind, body and spirit. 

BFC: The Basics

  • We are a four year co-ed, college preparatory school within the Archdiocese of Detroit. Our students come from over 60 different schools, including Catholic and public schools.

  • The average class size at BFC is 18 students, allowing for teachers to spend quality time with each individual.

  • We prepare our students for success by encouraging the growth of each individual on an academic, spiritual, and personal level. Our statistics alone prove our success – 100% of our graduates regularly go on to higher education at a multitude of colleges and universities!

Undeniably Catholic

  • Our recently renovated chapel is in the heart of our school, providing a serene place for prayer and meditation at any time of the day. We stay Christ-centered by holding a weekly Mass every Tuesday morning that the entire school - students, staff, faculty, and some parents - attend.
  • Our students respond to the Call to serve through required service hours for each student and our annual Be the Difference Day. We offer meaningful retreat opportunities to students in order to foster their spiritual growth.

  • The Theology Department offers students a Christ-based curriculum that helps students deepen their relationship with God, enrich their understanding of our Catholic faith, and expand their knowledge on other world religions.

Academically Excellent

  • We offer over 130 courses and electives, including 7 Honors classes and 12 Advance Placement classes, which allows our students to obtain college credits before even leaving our campus.

  • We are an accredited school through Advanc-Ed National Accreditation.

  • Students have the opportunity to dual enroll with University of Detroit Mercy to obtain college credit. 

Why Co-Ed?

  • Coeducational schools offer the best representation of the broader society. Students who learn to work with members of the opposite gender are better prepared for the world beyond school.

  • Coeducation sends a strong message to students of the value of equality and diversity.

  • Coeducation provides students the opportunity to experience the social dynamics that occur between the two genders, better preparing them for a primarily gender-balanced world.

Outside of the Classroom

  • Our student athletes train to become competitive and respectful stars in their sport of choice in our first class athletic complex – Venture Park.

  • BFC sports teams have won over 70 championship titles since 2000.
  • Our extra-curricular activities have been recognized nationwide as exceptional. Whether it’s our award-winning Robotics Team, our competitive Fine Arts programs, or our newly-created Culinary Arts club – there is something unique at BFC for every individual!
