Bishop Brady High School is a small, private, Catholic co-educational school in Concord, New Hampshire. It is located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Manchester. The official enrollment is 385 students attending. "A Catholic school, a caring community" is the slogan that adorns their sign and is the principle which has guided the school since its founding in 1963. Brady is a four-year college preparatory program.

The school's motto is "fides, caritas, veritas", translated as "faith, charity, and truth".[2]

History[edit]

Established in 1963, Bishop Brady offers a college preparatory program in a supportive Christian atmosphere. The school replaced St. John's High School, which opened its doors in 1930 on South State Street in Concord. (Saint John's building is still in use as Concord's Catholic K-8 school, Saint John Regional School.)

An expansion and renovation project was completed at Bishop Brady in May 2007, creating a new multimedia center, new guidance suite, six new classrooms, an expanded chapel, and four new administrative offices as well as renovation to the existing administrative area and cafeteria.

The school is named for Matthew F. Brady, a former Bishop of Manchester.

Faculty[edit]

Bishop Brady has 41 full-time faculty members and 3 part-time.
