Vision Statement

Brophy College Preparatory's vision and core values are based upon the unwavering belief that
diversity, equity and inclusivity are essential. Brophy condemns intolerance as contradictory to the core values of Catholic, Ignatian traditions. Brophy re-affirms its commitment to use its influence as an educational institution to promote and teach the value of an equitable and inclusive community and to provide the necessary tools to be culturally competent in our increasingly diverse society.
The Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI) leads Brophy’s efforts to ensure that each historically under-represented student and his family is fully included in the Brophy experience and has an equitable opportunity to thrive in all areas of student life. Under-represented students include students of color, students whose families have limited financial resources, first-generation college-bound students, and students with disabilities. The OEI will...
  • Collaborate with Brophy's administrative team on school activities and programs
  • Provide oversight of student advocacy and outreach, and collaborate with the Student Activities Office in the area of equity, inclusion and outreach
  • Advise on curriculum in partnership with assistant principals and department chairs to help develop  culturally responsive and equitable curriculum
  • Support the Brophy Black Family Alliance, Padres Latinos Unidos de Brophy, Loyola Academy families and families with students with disabilities, as well as all student culture and advocacy groups
  • Provide community outreach and engagement

  • Brophy's Ignatian Identity

    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; 
    • through the Office of Faith and Justice that is both the heart and hands of Ignatian action;
    • through Loyola Academy — an on-campus middle school for potential first-generation college students whose families live below the poverty level;
    • through the curriculum with courses such as the Romero Program;
    • through student and faculty advocacy for marginalized students and families;
    • and through programs such as Theology in the City, the annual two-week Summit on Human Dignity, and Ignatian Spirituality retreats for the parent and alumni community.
    Theology in the City (recent topics)
    • The Jesuits and Indigenous Peoples
    • Interrogating Our Past to Animate Our Future: Georgetown University’s Working Group on Slavery, Memory and Reconciliation
    • Father Greg Boyle, SJ – Homeboy Industries
  • A School and Family Partnership

    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 teach 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.

    Please don't hesitate to start a conversation with a member of Brophy's Office of Equity and Inclusion should you have questions or concerns. Brophy exists as a microcosm of our larger society; thus, we experience many of the same challenges that our nation faces. Let's resolve to be diligent and unified in our efforts to provide every member of our community an equitable and inclusive Brophy experience.

Introduction to
"Our Way of Proceeding:
Standards & Benchmarks of Jesuit Schools
in the 21st Century"

The mission of the Society of Jesus… is a mission rooted in the belief that a new world of justice, love and peace needs educated persons of competence, conscience and compassion – men and women who are ready to embrace and promote all that is fully human, who are committed to working for the freedom and dignity of all peoples, and who are willing to do so in cooperation with others equally dedicated to the reform of society and
its structures.
