There are many things that make a Brother Rice student who he is. None of which are average. We encourage our students to develop their interests and pursuits through experiential learning opportunities, helping them discover hidden talents and passions. Every student’s path is different and we believe that is a good thing. We also believe that only when you are 100% YOU, are you 100% Brother Rice!
The same is true for our faculty and staff. Every adult on campus is fully committed to helping each student become his best self, and they do this by being theirs.
“I love being able to share all of my interests with my students. Since returning to Brother Rice nine years ago, I have done a little bit of everything in and out of the classroom. I have taught Engineering Design, Physics, and Geometry. In addition, I have coached Cross Country and Track, assisted in lighting design for school productions, joined students in musical performances, taken students to Peru and across the US, and lead our Kairos retreats. It’s one thing to have a student in a classroom, but to be able to guide them as they grow in all aspects of themselves is what I truly love about my job. It is a real gift to pay it forward and help my students find their passions and grow into honorable men just as my teachers at Brother Rice did for me.” — Mr. James Higdon ’10
