The purpose of the Association shall be to foster communication between Brother Rice High School and Alumni worldwide; to encourage social, spiritual and professional interaction among Alumni, faculty and students of Brother Rice High School; and to promote the ideals of the Christian Brothers: scholarship, spirituality and service to others.
The Brother Rice High School Alumni Association is a volunteer organization of alumni of Brother Rice High School, Bloomfield Hills, Mich. The Alumni Association meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Board Room of Brother Rice. The Alumni Association plans activities to encourage camaraderie among alumni, raising funds for tuition assistance awards for students at the school, and coordinating volunteer assistance with on-going school projects, activities, athletics, and events.
The Association’s main events include Boxing Night, Senior/Alumni Luncheon and the Golf Outing of which proceeds go directly to fund Alumni Scholarships. It currently funds thirteen (13) $ 2,000 annual scholarships that help keep existing students in the school. We encourage all members of the Brother Rice Community to attend our events so we can continue to give back to students in need.

Each year, the Alumni Association selects the annual Alumnus of the Year. Upon browsing the list of past winners, it is clear to see a fraternity of men who resemble the traits of what a Brother Rice education produces among its students and graduates. Brother Rice alumni bring a different talent to their profession: whether it is their community, their country, or the church, the common thread is that they were all blessed with a Brother Rice education. Each of these Alumnus of the Year award winners share a tremendous dedication to the mission of Brother Rice High School, a mission that includes promoting Brother Rice’s values through life-long personal growth and responsible, moral decision-making.
