EDUCATING YOUNG MEN FOR LIFE


“WE ARE NOT HERE TO TEACH BOYS HOW TO MAKE A LIVING BUT HOW TO MAKE A LIFE.” - Brother Martin Hernandez, S.C. 1904-1991


MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of Brother Martin High School is to form young people through a holistic education that fosters academic excellence in a caring, disciplined community, which integrates Catholic tradition and the charism of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart to meet the needs of a changing world.

Brothers of the Sacred Heart - In New Orleans Since 1869 Quality Catholic Education for boys 8 th - 12th grade

1


PHILOSOPHY The 152-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


ST. ALOYSIUS 1869 - 1969

COR JESU 1954 - 1969

BROTHER MARTIN 1969 - PRESENT

H I STO RY 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 (18691969) 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.

“

All that we learned in class, our pursuit of academic excellence, has laid for us a foundation of knowledge that we can continue to build upon. The caring, well-structured environment of Brother Martin has ingrained in us the responsibility and self-discipline we will need to be successful and to hold ourselves accountable.

ACADEMIC


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.

BROTHE R MARTI N Student Device Types

The unstructured class period is instructional time designed to provide the student opportunities to do independent study, including reference work, and to use the library, Formation Center, and resource centers. Also, the student can arrange conferences with teachers, guidance counselors and/or campus ministers. While always under adult supervision, the student can develop a sense of self-responsibility, self-discipline, efficient use of his unstructured time, and serious study habits. All students have an unstructured class period every day.

TH E FO RM AT IO N C E N T E R The Formation Center is designated to provide tutoring to students who need academic assistance before school, during their unstructured periods, and/or after school. Students come to the center voluntarily, or as required by teachers, counselors, or the Formation Director. The Formation Center is also a place where students remediate missed or incomplete homework assignments in order to better prepare them for their classes. Teachers and National Honor Society members are available to provide any necessary assistance in building skills and strategies to foster students’ academic success.

Yet what I would soon learn over the course of my time here is that if you don’t give up on Brother Martin, it will not give up on you. After my rough first year, I imagined that the school was designed for me to fail, but it was just the opposite. As many of our teachers expressed, if you seek help, they will never let you fail... Brother Martin manages to both challenge us and allow us to challenge ourselves. It encourages and fosters our individual interests and strengths. It pushes us to become the best versions of ourselves academically, socially, and spiritually. And most importantly, it teaches us to teach ourselves. The goal of this carefully crafted environment is to mature us to the point where we no longer need it. That’s what it means to 'make a life'.

“ I run cross country for a variety of reasons. I run because I want to be better and faster than the person I was the day before. I run because my team is the greatest brotherhood an athlete can ask for. I run because my coach is always encouraging me to strive for something just a little more. I run because I know I have a team with me and behind me ready for the next race.

I CHOSE BROTHER MARTIN “... because it immediately felt like home when I walked into the building. The facilities are some of the best in the city, along with a first-class education from an incredible faculty who truly cares about the success of every individual student and an incredible athletic department committed to excellence. The decision was very clear and simple to me: I wanted to be a Crusader.” - Chandler Bonvillian ‘21 (Christian Brothers School) “... because it was the right fit for me. After attending a top-notch public school in the area, I knew I was missing a piece of the high school puzzle I was looking for. A Catholic education surrounded by a supportive family of students and faculty is what I found at Brother Martin.” - Jack Robinson ‘21 (Haynes Academy for Advanced Studies)

“... because from my first open house, I could tell that the faculty and staff were dedicated to the well-being and success of each individual.” - Victor Garcia ‘21 (Holy Name of Jesus School)

“... for three reasons: academics, spiritual guidance, and an atmosphere of brotherhood. I witnessed this firsthand at events I attended such as Open House, Discovery Night, and Junior High Band Night. There is a true fellowship amongst the students at Brother Martin. I wanted to attend a school that had much to offer and made me feel welcomed and challenged in many ways.” - Darren Martino ‘21 (St. Clement of Rome School) 23
