THE BROPHY OFFICE OF EQUITY AND INCLUSION serves all under-represented members of the Brophy College Preparatory community. It seeks to provide the leadership that ensures every community member is fully represented and that every community member has the resources necessary to grow in understanding of what it means to be inclusive, anti-racist and an ally in working toward equal justice for all.
Brophy represents a diverse community united in the core belief that loving acceptance, deep respect and equitable opportunity must be extended across all lines of race, religion, gender and socio-economic circumstances. As we gain a broader awareness of those things that perpetuate antipathy toward that core belief, we have increased responsibility to teach, advocate and form partnerships that will counter those threats and help create a society free of barriers, bias and injustice.
The Office of Equity and Inclusion leadership invites you to contact them with questions, suggestions or concerns. En Español

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualist concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” ~ Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The support of parents and community members is imperative as we strive to educate our community on issues of equity and inclusion and ensure that all students and families are fully included in the Brophy experience.
Parents are the first, the most important, and the most influential teachers in their children's lives. Let's encourage them to respect people of all races, cultures, gender or ability, and engage them in conversations that will help them to understand that discrimination of any kind is not acceptable.

Almost 500 years ago, when St. Ignatius of Loyola established the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), education quickly became a key focus of their ministry, with St. Ignatius believing that Jesuit schools should encompass “improvement in living and learning for the greater glory of God and the common good.” The Jesuits believed that there was no better way to change lives than to provide a stellar academic program rooted in faith, and thus they determined a Jesuit education would be available to all, regardless of socio-economic circumstances. Jesuits became missionaries — traveling to all parts of the world and establishing schools wherever they went. Today, there are approximately 850 Jesuit institutions worldwide.
Brophy constantly seeks to be faithful to its Jesuit charism and Ignatian identity...
through a need-blind admission process and a robust financial aid program;
“Equity and inclusion is the work of our hearts, and is at the center of our very mission and identity as a Jesuit institution. We are called to build and nurture spaces where we all can grow in the hope of becoming better every day.” ~ Ms. Deena Sellers
