Bishop Foley Catholic High School is a Catholic high school affiliated with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit. Founded in 1965, it is named after the first American Bishop of Detroit, John Samuel Foley. It is located in Madison Heights, Michigan.
Bishop Foley Catholic High School has an enrollment of approximately 300 students as of the 2021–2022 school year. It is governed by an advisory elected Board of Education, but the final power rests with the President, who has always been the pastor of one of the school's two founding parishes: (the now defunct) St. Dennis Church in Royal Oak, or Guardian Angels Church in Clawson. Bishop Foley is accredited by Cognia.
Bishop Foley Catholic High School opened in 1965 and was founded by Guardian Angels Church in Clawson and St. Dennis Church in Royal Oak. The first class graduated in 1969. The school was initially separated by gender; the effects of this policy can still be seen in the building as all men's restrooms are all on the north side and all women's bathrooms are on the south side.
The demographic breakdown of the 312 students enrolled for 2019-20 was:
- Native American/Alaskan - 0.3&
- Asian - 3.8%
- Black - 2.6%
- Hispanic - 3.8%
- White - 84.4%
- Native Hawaiian/Pacific islanders - 0.6%
- Multiracial - 4.5%
