Brooklyn Jesuit Prep students are exposed to a rigorous program designed to give them a strong academic foundation, a well-rounded character and the support needed for sustained success. The Brooklyn Jesuit experience consists of three cohesive parts:
BJP students are challenged daily through a rigorous curriculum of six core subjects: writing, math, reading, social studies, science and religion. In addition, every student participates in study hall for academic enrichment and sports and activities during the mandatory extended day program. Students participate in a selection of activities such as basketball, track and field, drama, music, art, crochet, soccer and much more. Students are assessed both on their academic performance and character development.
Summer Leadership Camp
All rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade BJP students participate in a summer leadership camp during the month of July at Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut. The students receive academic enrichment in the mornings with leadership and spiritual development in the afternoons and evenings. Students are given the opportunity to get away from the streets of Brooklyn and grow to be independent learners and leaders.
Brooklyn Jesuit Prep continues its commitment to the education of its graduates through its Graduate Support Program. BJP’s Graduate Support Program is designed to ensure that graduates successfully complete high school and prepare themselves for college. The program partners with the parents of our graduates to ensure stability, accountability and motivation for students once they leave BJP.
The Graduate Support Director communicates regularly with guidance counselors or other appropriate personnel of area high schools that BJP graduates attend. The Director makes regular visits to the high school to meet with school personnel and the graduates in person. The Director ensures that students tap into appropriate resources available at their high schools especially if a student needs academic or other support.
The Director supported by BJP administrators and other BJP faculty maintains close contact with all graduates through social events, emails, Facebook and personal meetings. The Graduate Support Program helps graduates to prepare for the SAT and organizes programs to prepare graduates for the college application process.
Where necessary, Brooklyn Jesuit Prep provides high school tuition assistance.
