Academics at Brophy

The almost 500-year-old Jesuit legacy of academic excellence is alive and well at Brophy. Brophy’s academic program supports the school's mission to educate the whole person and to form young men who are intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to doing justice — the five hallmarks of the Jesuit Graduate at Graduation. The curriculum leads students toward intimate investigation and experience within all courses of study: the humanities, religious and ethical studies, social studies, science and technology, mathematics, fine arts, physical education and world languages. The focus is not on rote memorization but rather inquiry and exploration that prepares students not only to succeed in the university arena and the world beyond its walls, but also to affirm where the world is working for the greater glory of God, to question where it is not and to work as agents of change.

Although we recognize that test scores do not tell the entire academic story of any institution, Brophy consistently celebrates some of the largest groups of National Merit semifinalists, finalists and commended students of any Arizona high school.

Over the past seven years, Brophy has had 75 students earn semifinalist/finalist status and 131 students recognized as National Merit commended students. Additionally, historically, approximately one-third of our seniors graduate with Distinction — a weighted cumulative GPA of 4.0 or higher.

From the beginning, the Jesuits have been known for their own academic rigor as well as that of the institutions they've founded and over the centuries, a Jesuit education has become synonymous with academic excellence. That legacy lives on at Brophy.
