About

Our Campus

Designed in the Spanish Colonial style by John Rinker Kibbey, Brophy College Preparatory's
architecture pays tribute to the early Spanish missions of the Southwest. The campus — with its distinctive architecture, iconic 135-foot bell tower and expansive front lawn — has become a Phoenix landmark.

Founded in 1928

In 1927, Mrs. William Henry Brophy donated land and funds to establish a Jesuit high school in honor of her late husband. The school opened in September 1928 with Brophy Hall providing classrooms, Romley Hall serving as a residence for the Jesuit faculty and administration, and Brophy Chapel — now on the National Register of Historic Places — as a place to worship.
 
The campus has expanded its footprint over the years, with new construction staying true to the original Spanish Colonial style and abundant outdoor spaces incorporated into the design. It has been featured in Architectural Digest as one of the country's most beautiful high school campuses.
