Tags: Brophy College Prep, education, Jesuit, jesuits, Service
In August, Brophy College Preparatory opened the doors to Loyola Academy, a new program which provides a Catholic, Jesuit education to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade boys who demonstrate academic promise but have had limited educational opportunities. As a result, Loyola Academy will observe an extended school day and school year in order to provide intensive and sustained remediation and to achieve the academic gains necessary to prepare these boys to be successful Brophy students. Their story was recently featured on NBC 12, the local Phoenix affiliate:
The goal for Loyola Academy is that it becomes fully sustainable through an endowment which is currently being raised. To date major funding for Loyola Academy has been provided by the Steele Foundation, the Phoenix Jesuit Community and Ken Kendrick, managing general partner of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
