A Letter from the President


Welcome to Brophy College Preparatory! I hope you will find the information on our website helpful in exploring what it means to be Jesuit educated.

As President, my role is to serve as the chief executive officer of the school. I work closely with the Board of Trustees, the Board of Regents, the Principal, the Director of Development, and with the other members of the President’s Office. I am responsible for the school’s financial health, for representing Brophy in the larger community, and most of all, for making sure we fulfill Brophy’s mission.

The four transformational years a young man spends at Brophy are just the beginning of his lifelong journey of learning, of faith, and of service. He will leave Brophy as a young man of competence, conscience, and compassion with a deep faith rooted in love and serving others. He will exemplify The Profile of the Graduate at Graduation: a young man who is open to growth, intellectually competent, loving, religious, and committed to doing justice.

As a Jesuit institution, Brophy adheres to the vision and legacy of St. Ignatius of Loyola who founded the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) almost 500 years ago. Ignatius believed that a strong educational foundation was vital to a strong spiritual foundation and set about creating a network of institutions that would educate future leaders of the Church and the world.

Brophy is the only Jesuit high school in Arizona, and one of a network of 63 high schools and 28 colleges and universities in the United States. For more than 80 years, Brophy has been committed to the Jesuit ideal of educating the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. Rigorous academics and a stellar athletic program combine with the heart and soul of our Jesuit institution – the Office of Faith and Justice – to transform our young men into leaders committed to service and social justice – Men for Others.

Again, thank you for visiting. We are glad you are here, and interested in becoming part of our Brophy community and a man for others.

In gratitude,
Adria E. Renke
President
