The mission of the Brebeuf Jesuit Diversity Program is to support, empower, and build relationships with students from all backgrounds.
Brebeuf Jesuit seeks to produce graduates who are intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to doing justice.
In pursuit of this goal, a diverse student body becomes part of the educational experience, better preparing students to work in an increasingly multicultural world, one in which local, national and international tensions are often grounded in cultural, religious or linguistic differences.
The Brebeuf Jesuit mission statement and core values both acknowledge the place of diversity within the life of the school…Diversity at Brebeuf Jesuit is about more than just demographics; it’s about being a place where all are welcomed and affirmed as reflections of the God who is in all things.
As such, Brebeuf Jesuit’s diversity initiatives and programs enhance the life of the school, contributing to an open, accepting, and rich environment. The motivation to reach out to people of all kinds and every part of the world is fundamental to the Society of Jesus. As a Jesuit secondary school, Brebeuf Jesuit continues this tradition.
