I m guessing that the previous review is most likely from someone who never attended Brebeuf. I went there and graduated in 2009. I can assure you that I am not a drug addict, nor were any of the students I knew at Brebeuf. This is a silly stereotype that other schools tend to place on it. I also don't entirely understand the statement that we are all from rich families. One of my best friends was a 21st century scholar and I paid for 15% of my tuition out of my own pocket. In any case, I am in the Nursing School at Indiana University, and I am so grateful that I went to brebeuf because it prepared me academically and socially for college in ways I never knew it would. Brebeuf has some of the most amazing teachers in the world. They are open to questions and always want their students to succeed. I graduated with lifelong friends, memorable teachers, and a stable academic background. I will never forget or regret my days at Brebeuf. And I never felt like it was a prison, I felt like it was one of the most intellectually open environments I could have had as a high school student. I would send my children here if I were a parent..

Brebeuf provided an excellent high school experience. At my liberal arts college in New England, I quickly learned that not all students are privileged enough to not only have gotten a great college prep curriculum, but also have such a supporting and loving learning environment. Even though I was in many AP classes and participated in several academic competitions, I never felt as though Brebeuf was a competitive environment. The idea was that we were all smart enough to be there, so why bother with public student rankings or other statistics to force students to compete with each other over grades and accomplishments. The teachers at Brebeuf are superb -- I still find myself thanking my honors and AP English teachers for the incredible writing foundation that they instilled in me. In college and graduate school, I have felt prepared thanks to the foundation that Brebeuf offered me.

Our daughter visited several schools public and private and none had the combination of superb academics, community service opportunity and personal growth and acountablity. I highly recommend this school to parents and students who are serious about a high quality education and preparation for a collegiate career at the school of their choice!

It gives the students such wonderful opportunities, while pushing them academically and gives them an opportunity to partake in the freedom that you will recieve in college!

This school fully prepared my daughter for her latter years in life. Brebeuf made her the well rounded person she is today, giving her not only the academic tools to succeed, but also life lessons. Sending my daughter to Brebeuf is one of the best decisions of my life, and is money well spent!

Brebeuf Jesuit continues to graduate students prepared for a college education. The Jesuit way of 'Men and Women in service to others.' instills a sense of volunteerism into the students, too. Our daughter has gone on to graduate summa cum laude from a Jesuit university and is presently pursuing her Master's degree - on a fellowship grant. Brebeuf is not for every student. If your son or daughter is self-motivated, intellectually curious and has a passion for learning, this may be the right school for them.

When we chose to send our daughter to Brebeuf, we did it because we wanted to avoid the overcrowding and institutionalized nature of the northern suburban schools (carmel, zionsville, etc). The size of the school is an obvious advantage, as teachers can spend more time with each student and students feel like they are cared for in a smaller student body. However, once considered an environment where faculty trusted students and students were given more rights than the public schools, Brebeuf is now no less institutionalized than the public schools and has become a police state of sorts. Random drug tests and police searches of cars are the norm now at Brebeuf. Seniors have few privileges that their underclassment don't already have. Once a school that stood above the subruban schools in the area, now just a waste of 12 grand a year...

Truly a school that sculpts and shapes who you are and what lies ahead in your future...

I am a recent alum, and I had a fantastic time at Brebeuf. The schedule really does prep you for college (where I am now) because you have to learn how to manage your time efficiently while maintaining healthy relationships with your peers. The teachers are great too! I ran into a '78 alum (who incidentally works across the hall from my lab), and we brought up Sara Compton and Claire Baker. Fabulous thoughts, fabulous people, fabulous memories. Such a positive high school environment, not forcing religion on anyone. In fact, I firmly believe that Brebeuf encourages deep thought and philosophy - and most importantly, inflection. I sorely miss the well thought-out retreats.

Brefeuf provided an excellent curriculum which prepared my children well for their college studies. The teachers there provided individual guidance as warranted which helped to guide both of my Brebeuf grads into their areas of college study. Community service and caring for fellow citizens are expected and embraced. The extra-curricular activities provide a great opportunity for building self-esteem as well as learning sportmanship. The education is well rounded, well developed and well taught. The teachers are fine, dedicated individuals who honor their vocations. The administration is accessible and involved. This is truly a great institution.
