Brophy serves as shelter from below-average state funding
There are more benefits from going to a private school than one might think: going to Brophy protects students from the terrible state funding per student.
Arizona ranks 47th in the nation in per student funding, according to the U.S. Census of 2006-2007.
This report shows that Arizona spends $7,196 on each student per year. That is nearly $2,500 below the national average of $9,666.
