Student-Parent Handbook Handbook 2017-07-26 - Page 6

Three Party Partnership for Excellence The Student, The Parents and Brother Rice High School The Student/Parent Handbook has been compiled to familiarize students and parents/guardians with Brother Rice’s philosophy, goals, academic requirements, school services and activities, student conduct and responsibilities and any other pertinent information. Brother Rice provides an excellent educational experience for all students, while at the same time affording young men the opportunity to mature into Christian gentlemen. Students are encouraged to develop their academic and extra-curricular talents in a community of faith where students, parents/guardians, teachers and staff endeavor to live the values of the Gospel. Inspired by the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice and the Congregation of Christian Brothers, an international order of religious teachers, Brother Rice’s mission is to nurture the spiritual, intellectual, and physical development of each student within a vibrant community of faith. Brother Rice men are challenged to develop as leaders who will shape a more just and peaceful society. 3
