When St. Ignatius and his followers founded the first Jesuit schools almost 500 years ago, they challenged the prevailing norms that offered a top-tier education only to those who could afford it. Instead, they mandated that Jesuit institutions be open to all qualified students, regardless of socio-economic circumstances. The Jesuits recognized that an exemplary education is the most powerful and effective means of improving lives, forming leaders, and instilling the importance of serving others. Five centuries later, that concept is still the bedrock of the Jesuit educational mission and Brophy seeks to provide thorough and transparent financial aid information to all who apply.
The cost of tuition should not deter a student and his family from applying to Brophy. Once an applicant is accepted on his own merit, Brophy is committed to working with each family's unique circumstances to provide need-based financial assistance. (Please note that the admission decision is "need blind" and does not involve any financial considerations.) A family also may seek financial assistance from a variety of outside sources. These may include funds based on need, merit or, in the case of some School Tuition Organizations (STOs), tuition assistance may be available through tax credit funds recommended specifically for your son.
