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!
“To me, Brother Rice means caring about the people around you and building a strong community together with your friends. It means being humble and grateful for what we have. Finally, to extend our hands to all those in need and make them our brothers and sisters.” — Justine Chappell ’23

Brother rice has helped me grow as a leader and challenged my thinking time and time again, always pushing me to take the next step in both my academic endeavors and inner thinking. Brother Rice has taught me to always be hungry for knowledge and to want to learn about the world around me.
My favorite teacher is Mr. Seneski. I have had him three out of my four years at Brother Rice and he has made such an impact on my life. English is one of my favorite subjects and he helped bring that out of me during classes. In addition, his ability to teach Christian Morality really resonated with me. His words have inspired me to be better and I have learned to think outside of myself, to better care for others. He is a real inspiration.
My favorite place on campus definitely has to be the Center for Learning & Achievement. I spend time tutoring students there as well as laughing with my friends. It is a place that feels like home, both by myself and with my brothers here at Brother Rice.
My favorite thing about Brother Rice definitely has to be the relationships and companionship. Brother Rice takes time to help build relationships between the younger and older students through the Band of Brothers. This collective organization of both younger and older students gives older students the chance to be mentors and helps the younger generations have someone to look up to and be inspired by. The program really helped me as a freshman and in turn, I have now been given the opportunity to help those younger than me and build relationships with them.
I have definitely grown in my world view since attending Brother Rice. Many of us that attend this school are very fortunate and blessed. Brother Rice has helped me realize that there are many people out there that are not as fortunate. I have grown in my thinking in wanting to help others as not everyone has the same opportunities as me. Even though we are thought of as a sports school, Brother Rice’s primary focus is creating good young men.
