Brooklyn Jesuit Prep is a Jesuit middle school serving low-income families of diverse ethnicities and faiths in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. Their mission is to develop young leaders who are intellectually competent, open to growth, loving, religious and committed to doing justice. They achieve this goal through a rigorous academic program, an extended school day, a summer leadership camp and a graduate support program. In this way, they break the cycle of poverty and further the Jesuit tradition of molding men and women for others.
