Structure of the Class
For sophomores, the class will meet once a week during a PRT. Class periods will be designed to help students discover their strengths and potential career focuses. In addition, we will welcome speakers to campus to address areas of interest. Second semester, Ignatian Scholars will continue to meet with the Ignatian Scholars Coordinator and partake in Sophomore Seminar, while continuing their Ignatian Scholars activities.
In the junior year, students will meet formally at least twice with the Ignatian Scholars Coordinator to discuss their individual goals. The Ignatian Scholars coordinator will work with the students to identify opportunities and individuals to assist them as they research potential careers and majors in college. Juniors will also be assigned as a mentor to the current sophomore class of Ignatian Scholars.
Senior year, Ignatian Scholars have the opportunity to work Brebeuf alumni who are or have been enrolled at colleges and universities where the Scholar is applying. Alternatively, they may connect with Brebeuf alumni or parents who are currently working in career fields that interest them.
The Sophomore Ignatian Scholars class will complete a service activity that is chosen by the Scholars, to benefit their community. Ignatian Scholars from other grades will be invited to participate.
