ABOUT BROTHER RICE

Brother Rice High School is recognized as an exemplary, high-performing National Blue Ribbon School and a top-ranked Catholic college preparatory school for young men. The philosophy at Brother Rice promotes excellence through an environment conducive to lifelong personal growth, responsible moral choices, and critical thinking. We set high standards for our students and help every student, every year, achieve at their highest level of excellence. As a result, our students gain acceptance to top schools worldwide.

To complement our balanced and rigorous college-preparatory curriculum, our students are instilled with a strong foundation rooted in faith, service, and leadership — the cornerstones on which students build lives of fulfillment, achievement, and grace. Yes, our graduates are ready for college. More importantly, they are ready for life.

In accordance with the goals identified in the strategic plan, Brother Rice announced a $52 million combined commitment to educational, program, facility, and overall campus enhancements in May 2021. The ten-year plan includes $42 million in campus improvements and $10 million in endowment growth. The plan enhances an already robust foundation of excellence anchored in academics, faith, and leadership.

The construction of the new Center for Learning and Achievement, renovation of the locker rooms and faculty/staff commons, and structural enhancements to the school’s engineering lab are underway and mark the beginning of the multiphase commitment to accentuating and differentiating our mission.

We have something very special to offer with this creative programming that will enhance our traditional curriculum — student-centered, responsive, and aspirational have been prisms of our prioritized thinking. The Center for Learning and Achievement will be the academic hub to  inform, educate, inspire, and motivate students through specialized institutes, focusing on business leadership, innovation and entrepreneurship, character and citizenship.

Students will have unique opportunities to engage with successful alumni through targeted institute programming. They will be animated to learn and empowered to achieve, setting the course for personal, educational, and professional pursuits beyond Brother Rice, uniquely prepared to leave their mark on the world.

At this defining moment in the history of the school, Brother Rice High School affirms its position in the marketplace as the preeminent all-boys Catholic high school in the state of Michigan and renews its commitment to be such for decades to come.
