Spanning two generations, the Hawkins family has been a part of Brebeuf for more than three decades. And while there have been changes through the years, William Hawkins and his three children share a high school experience grounded in the values that are uniquely Brebeuf. The school is proud of its legacy families—and the bonds formed when parents and their children carry on the tradition.

“Many of the teachers that taught me have also taught my children. I rejoice in those relationships with Brebeuf ’s teachers and staff. They’re special people.”
– William

“What I took away from Brebeuf was the importance of just living your passion. Doing something that you really enjoy in life.”
– Amber

“When I first came to Brebeuf, I saw how much harder I had to work to get good grades, and I was also playing varsity basketball. Learning how to do that has taught me to make sure I’m using all my tools and resources to succeed.”
– Tyler

“Something that makes Brebeuf unique from other high schools are the academic advisors… they truly care about you and where you are going next after Brebeuf.”
– Jade
