Bishop Brady is a Roman Catholic, college preparatory high school, designed to promote the ideals of Faith, Learning and Service. We bear witness to our faith through community action, charitable endeavors, and caring relationships. In partnership with our families and the greater community, Bishop Brady challenges students to demonstrate excellence in all of their endeavors.
Bishop Brady is a center for the pursuit of excellence and for the development of the total person. In our caring community, each person is invited to build quality interpersonal relationships and to exert a positive influence on the climate of the school. Students learn in a nurturing, creative atmosphere; educators teach in a dedicated, professional manner; administrators know that caring is as important to the heart as knowledge is to the mind.
As a Catholic school and a caring community, we are committed to the following objectives:
- To introduce and reinforce Christian values in a learning and practicing environment by providing intellectual instruction and opportunities for religious experiences
- To offer programs which stimulate intellectual, spiritual, creative, social, and physical growth in each individual
- To offer students challenging college preparatory courses in a supportive and safe school environment
- To encourage students to develop a healthy respect for self, school, family, and society
Bishop Brady traces its roots to St. John’s High School which was established in 1930 on South State Street in Concord, New Hampshire. Named for the Most Reverend Matthew F. Brady, D.D., Bishop of Manchester, 1945-1959, Bishop Brady High School opened its doors in September 1963 as a Catholic co-educational school offering a college preparatory program in a supportive Christian atmosphere.
Continuing the traditions of St. John’s High School, Bishop Brady High School carries on the motto, “fides, caritas, veritas”- translated as faith, charity, and truth- the backbone of the strong principles behind the development of the total person. Our graduates are ready to face the world armed with a solid foundation of academic strength, a compassion for others, and a healthy respect for their religious beliefs, family and society.
