There is an all new group of young, impressionable students on campus this year, and I’m not just talking about the freshman class.
Starting this fall Brophy’s Loyola Academy opened as a middle school and a class full of sixth-grade students now share the campus with high school students.
Whether we know it or not, we are all now at least indirect role models for these students and we need to act accordingly.

Brophy will open Loyola Academy in 2011, a middle school for underprivileged students that will be located on the second floor of Loyola Hall.
“It’s a new program, part of Brophy, to help those students who have the intellectual ability to do well at Brophy but don’t have the academic and study habits background,” said Brophy President Fr. Eddie Reese S.J.
The program is geared toward taking the academically gifted out of the public school system and installing them into a middle school environment that will better prepare them for Brophy.
