Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School (BJPS) is a private college preparatory school founded by the Jesuits and located on the northwest side of Indianapolis. It is a part of the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus and geographically located within the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Indianapolis.
Brebeuf was opened in 1962 and was named in honor of St. Jean de Brébeuf, a 17th-century North American Jesuit martyr. The school was initially limited to male students, but in 1976 Brebeuf became coeducational.
A little under 800 students are enrolled - drawn from over 40 private and public schools in the greater Indianapolis area. In order to be eligible to apply to Brebeuf students must take the HSPT (High School Placement Test) and place above the 60th percentile. Each grade consists of approximately 200 students.
The school maintains a 100% graduation rate. This graduation rate is explained, in part, by the school's policy of Academic Contract, which can force students to leave Brebeuf Jesuit if they receive a GPA lower than 2.0 for three semesters. In addition, if a student is receiving an F in any class, he or she is required to take study hall to improve the grade.
The school has 29 Athletic Teams, ranging from Cross country to even the newest addition, Men's volleyball. In 2009 Brebeuf Jesuit completed construction of the $7 million Mark G. Kite Wellness Center. The 42,000-square-foot (3,900 m2) facility houses 2 weight rooms, 3 locker rooms, team meeting rooms, training room, gym, and athletic offices.
