“I love high school work, it’s very rewarding watching kids grow up and being able to affect lives,” says Fr. Reese. “I’m biased toward secondary education, it’s what we [the Jesuits] do best. Brophy is a great example of that.”
A recent project that he’s particularly passionate about is Brophy’s Loyola Academy, which provides a Catholic, Jesuit education to 6th, 7th and 8th grade boys who demonstrate academic promise but have had limited educational opportunities. Loyola Academy currently serves one class of sixth grade boys, and will add a new sixth grade class for the 2012/2013 school year.
