Cura Personalis: Brebeuf Jesuit Athletics provides an environment that cares for student-athletes by following the Jesuit principle of cura personalis. Our coaches get to know their student-athletes as individuals in order to best serve their specific needs to learn and grow. Coaches are mentors and advocates for their student-athletes, they challenge them appropriately, and they form lasting bonds.
Education of the Whole Person: Brebeuf Jesuit Athletics is an important part of the education of the whole person, and we also recognize that it is just one part. Our coaches are attentive to how each student-athlete is progressing in their academic, social, faith, and emotional development. They help students to navigate balance and prioritization.
Faith development: Brebeuf Jesuit Athletics integrates the faith development which is a key component of a Brebeuf Jesuit education, into the athletic experience. We do this in a variety of ways including team retreats and team prayer.
