Brophy College Preparatory is well-known in the Phoenix community as an incubator of National Merit honorees and AP Scholars with 99 percent of its students going on to college, however the Jesuit hallmark of Intellectual Competence is only one part of the formation of a Brophy graduate. The true value lies in the overall approach to education dictated by Brophy’s Jesuit identity as articulated centuries ago by St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus. The Jesuit philosophy insists that educational and spiritual formation must go hand-in-hand to create a citizen of the world prepared to lead with competence, conscience, and compassion.
To that end, a Brophy student is educated to be intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving, and committed to doing justice, the Jesuit ideals of the Graduate at Graduation. From his first steps on campus, a Brophy student is challenged in the classroom and on the playing field, inspired through service opportunities, and supported and encouraged during chapel and retreats. These combined experiences contribute to great academic, personal, and spiritual growth.
From its historical origins, Ignatian philosophy always has insisted that students educated within these Jesuit principles not only use this education to better their own lives, but also must strive to better the lives of others. Men of Brophy. Men for Others.
