Sixty years ago, Fr. Bill Schmidt, S.J., the first president of Brebeuf Jesuit, had the dream of starting what was, and remains, the only Jesuit school in Indiana. In the Fall of 1962, that dream became a reality, as 168 freshmen boys walked into a brand new building to become part of history.
Since its founding, Brebeuf Jesuit has cultivated the fullness of its students’ God-given talents to create men and women for others. Brebeuf Jesuit is excited to share two initiatives that we will embark on together to strengthen the very foundation of our School, enrich our students’ learning environment, and continue to position Brebeuf Jesuit as a premier college preparatory institution.
Capital Campaign Goal: $15 Million
Brebeuf Jesuit is poised to add to its history of dynamic and innovative approaches to education that strives to continually raise the expectations and definition of excellence. Our vision for the school’s future is that Brebeuf Jesuit, rooted in the Jesuit tradition, will be the best college preparatory school in central Indiana by providing an outstanding academic program and ensuring the education of the whole person. To achieve this mission, we must address the utilization of our learning environment, the preservation of our physical plant, and the necessary resources to make a Jesuit education possible for future generations of Brebeuf Jesuit students.
The leadership of Brebeuf Jesuit is actively engaged in efforts to expand and enhance our facility and support our long-term financial stability through an expanded endowment. The financial targets for the campaign include:
- $7.5 Million: Student Center
- $7.5 Million: Endowment Support
We welcome the privilege to work alongside you, our Brebeuf Jesuit community, to continue educating our students as whole people, and ensuring that the same educational opportunities are available to every future Brebeuf student.
We are overwhelmed by the $9 million we have already secured during the leadership phase of this campaign, and we sincerely thank you for your tremendous generosity during this monumental time in Brebeuf’s history. With your continued support, we will no doubt achieve our $15 million goal. We look forward to working with you to make this dream of ours a reality.
