PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
Bishop Brady High School is a diocesan Catholic secondary school that nurtures students by engaging them in a rigorous academic program, encouraging them to deepen their faith, and inviting them to extend their commitment to serving others. As a Catholic school, we are rooted in the love of Jesus Christ, God's gift of grace to the world. We are called to care for each other, to be responsible to and for our community, to be respectful, and to seek the truth courageously. Students, faculty, parents and alumni all agree to these principles as the guideposts for our learning community.
Above all else, Bishop Brady High School is a caring and nurturing Christian community. We promote the dignity of the whole person – body, mind and soul. Our high standards reflect that all students and community members are called to grow beyond their present limits; we are called to excellence in all that we do. Participation in the Brady experience is a journey toward making the right decisions and growing closer to God.
All members of our community is responsible to live with integrity, to care for their neighbor, and to promote the common good. We call on each other to engage with the community, to find God in everything that is around us, and to help transform the world.
We are called to respect ourselves and our community, both at and beyond Bishop Brady High School. We are particularly committed to instilling a sense of accountability to those who are the least in society: the poor, the weak, and the disenfranchised. Our faith-filled environment nurtures social consciousness and prepares students to become responsible global citizens capable of changing the world.
We are called to seek the truth courageously. Our academic curriculum is infused with occasions for active engagement in real world experiences to stimulate and shape critical thinking and positive action. Truth is also gained through personal reflection and collaboration with others. Our teaching and learning encourages individual passions and creates opportunities for deepening our understanding of ourselves, our peers, the world, and God.
