Our Mission & History

Mission Statement

Bishop Brady High School is a Roman Catholic, college preparatory, co-educational high school, founded upon the values of faith, learning and service. 

In partnership with families and the greater community, Bishop Brady instills a desire in students to engage in service to others and challenges them to rise above the expected in the pursuit of excellence.


Bishop Brady is a center for the pursuit of excellence and for the development of the total person. It is a caring community, where each person is invited to build quality interpersonal relationships and to exert a positive influence on the climate of the school. It is a Catholic school where students learn in a nurturing, creative atmosphere; where educators teach in a dedicated, professional manner; where 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 by providing intellectual instruction and opportunities for religious experiences
  • To offer programs which stimulate intellectual, creative, emotional, spiritual, and physical growth in each individual
  • To offer students college preparatory courses in a supportive, orderly school environment
  • To encourage students to develop a healthy respect for self, school, family, and society


Bishop Brady High School, traces its roots to St. John's High School, established in 1930 on South State Street in Concord, New Hampshire.

Bishop Brady High School, named for the Most Reverend Matthew F. Brady, D.D., Bishop of Manchester, 1945-1959, opened its doors in September 1963 as a private, 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, self, family and society.

An expansion and renovation project was completed at Bishop Brady in May 2007, creating a new multimedia center, new guidance suite, six new classrooms, an expanded chapel, and four new administrative offices as well as renovation to the existing administrative area and cafeteria.
