Jesuit Education in the 21st Century


Brophy College Preparatory incorporates leading-edge technologies within the classroom and throughout our school community to ensure that our students graduate with the skills necessary to thrive in a world increasingly dependent on technology.
 
The goals of Brophy’s technology program goes beyond simply teaching students how to use the latest tools and devices. Students are encouraged to find answers, create solutions, and solve problems. Students learn how to use technology to better engage and explore the world around them, and ultimately, to be able to respond compassionately and effectively to a global society that needs their acumen and leadership.
 
Brophy has assembled an extensive network infrastructure, a wealth of digital resources for faculty and students, a state-of-the-art technology lab - the Innovation Commons - and a successful one-to-one computing program using Apple iPads. (Beginning with the Class of 2021, the program is moving to the MacBook Air as its computing device.)
 
Brophy’s technology resources include:

  • Currently over 1,400 iPads serving our 1:1 program
  • Wireless network across campus
  • Fiber-backed network infrastructure
  • An 11,500-square-foot “makerspace," the Innovation Commons, that includes a coding lab; 3-D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers, and other equipment
  • An extensive collection of digital academic databases
  • Instructure Canvas – online course management system
  • Blackbaud cloud-based Student Information System and digital gradebooks
  • A mixed environment of Windows and Apple laptops
  • Wireless digital projection in every classroom
  • Every faculty member using a laptop and an iPad
  • Google Apps for Education service for student email and online documents
