EDUCATING YOUNG MEN FOR LIFE

- Brother Martin Hernandez, S.C. 1904-1991

OUR PHILOSOPHY

At Brother Martin High School, our faculty and students work together as a community united by the power of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. With an emphasis on Religious Values, Academic Excellence, Personal Attention, and Friendly Discipline, we believe that our students will learn to use their gifts, granted by God, to make our school and our community a better place.

- Ryan Gallagher ‘00 - Principal of Brother Martin High School

The 150-year educational tradition of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart is grounded in a holistic approach to education. We believe that young persons learn from their total experience of the school setting. The most important aspect of any Catholic education is the development of Christian values and the transmission of the Catholic heritage. Our efforts to have religion spread through the school include campus ministry programs, modeling of religious values, service with others, religious activities, and symbols in the school. We advocate an orderly and disciplined environment that is respectful, consistent, fair, and based on a relationship of mutual trust and cooperation. To promote an environment characterized by Christian concern and friendly discipline, we give our personal attention to developing open and genuine relationships with our students and parents through opportunities outside of class time and in less formal settings. We view academic excellence as the development of our students to the maximum of their potential. We establish a demanding curriculum, provide interesting lessons, and continually adapt our curriculum to help our students become the persons God created them to be. 2


OUR HISTORY

ST. ALOYSIUS 1869 - 1969

COR JESU 1954 - 1969

BROTHER MARTIN 1969 - PRESENT

Brother Martin is a private Catholic school offering a college preparatory curriculum for boys in grades 8 through 12. The school has a lay and religious faculty, which is under the direction of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, an international religious order founded in 1821 by Father AndrĂŠ Coindre in Lyons, France. In September of 1969, celebrating the 100th year of educational commitment to the youth of the New Orleans area, the Brothers of the Sacred Heart consolidated St. Aloysius (1869-1969) and Cor Jesu (1954-1969) high schools under the title of Brother Martin High School. In selecting the name, the Brothers honored one of their own. His contributions to the Brothers and to education are inscribed on the plaque in the lobby of the school: Brother Martin Hernandez, S.C., a Brother of the Sacred Heart whose lifetime of dedicated service to the youth of New Orleans is perpetuated by this building.

“

Brother Martin has not only prepared me for the rigors of college curriculum through the various Honors and AP courses I have had the opportunity to take, but also equipped me with the skills needed to succeed in life beyond the classroom. I have been taught more than just the content of each subject, but also the different ways to approach a complex topic in the same way one would have to analyze an issue in the real world.

EXCELLENCE “

Our academic programs strive not only to prepare students for the challenges of a variety of colleges and universities, but also to prepare them for life: we use a curriculum designed to make them careful readers, expressive writers, technology appliers, and faithful and empathetic thinkers. From the novels our students read to the online tools they use for writing and collaborating and everything in between, we hope to produce confident thinkers who use their heads and their hearts.

“COURAGE AND TRUST,

T H AT I S M Y M O T T O .”

- EDUCATIONAL MISSION AND MINISTRY

- Fr. André Coindre

We see our schools as successful if students graduate with a strong belief that God loves them. Students develop this belief in proportion to two factors: how much their teachers love them and the extent in which students sense teachers’ love through the interest shown them in the classroom and extracurricular activities.”

15


We believe that high quality extracurricular programs help to develop student’s pride in their school and in themselves. If students feel good about themselves and about their school’s extracurricular activities, there is a better chance that they will feel good about classroom work, discipline, and any other aspects of school that are necessary to develop them into the type of persons God has created them to be.

My years at Brother Martin have been all about family and friendship. The opportunity to play soccer alongside my older brothers while representing Brother Martin High School is an experience I will always remember. I have played soccer since I was four years old, and I am proud to finally wear the Crusader uniform on the field. Being a student-athlete at Brother Martin has taught me how to successfully manage competing priorities and has led me to friendships that I will value for a lifetime.
