The Personal Interview


All applicants (incoming freshmen and transfer students) are required to participate in a personal interview. Interviews will last approximately 15-20 minutes with either a Brophy faculty or staff member. There will be seven scheduled evenings (3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.) in January for freshmen applicant interviews. Sign ups begin online here on Monday, December 11, 2017. 

All transfer student interviews will be scheduled in April and May. Please contact the Admissions Office in early April to schedule a time. 

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • Q Who conducts the interviews?

    Each applicant will meet with either a Brophy administrator, teacher, or staff member for a personal interview. Applicants are randomly assigned an interviewer that afternoon once they check-in. 
  • Q How long does the interview last?

    Generally, it lasts 15-20 minutes. Depending on the interviewer's schedule, you could be on campus around 30-45 minutes. 
  • Q Where do we go for the interview?

    Applicants (and parent) should check in to the Student Activity Center or "SAC" at least 5 minutes prior to their interview appointment. Brophy students will escort your son to his interview while you remain in the SAC. Your son will return to the SAC within 30 minutes. Younger siblings are welcome to wait with you in the SAC.
  • Q What is the dress code for the interview?

    There is no specific dress code. A student should wear whatever makes him comfortable and confident. Most students choose to wear a collared shirt and nice pants, or their school uniform. 
  • Q Do parents participate in the interview?

    Parents do not participate in the interview process. All applicants will check in at the Student Activity Center where a current Brophy student will escort them to their interview. Parents will wait for their son to return to the Student Activity Center.
  • Q Should my son be nervous for his interview?

    Our best advice is for your son to be himself. Our interview is designed so that we learn more about your son--about his family, school, and interests. There is nothing he needs to do to prepare for the interview. It is less of an "interview" and more of a conversation to get to know him.
