A Look at Brophy's Block Schedule, New for 2022-23
STARTING IN AUGUST 2022, Brophy will move to a block class schedule. While we have all become accustomed to changes over the last two years, this is not something related to the pandemic and is instead the result of years of discussion and research. In the education world, a block schedule means that classes meet for longer periods of time and usually fewer sessions per week. We firmly believe adjusting our schedule will allow us to deepen student learning and will positively impact campus culture.
Block scheduling is not a new concept — schools have been utilizing block periods for decades and our own summer school classes have long operated in a de facto block schedule. It will, however, certainly be new for Brophy as a standard schedule. For historical context, the last time Brophy changed its bell schedule was in 2004, and even that incorporated 50-minute periods that were already well ingrained into daily campus life.
