About the Brothers of the Christian Schools
Christian Brothers Academy has the distinction of being directed by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, a religious teaching order of Brothers in the Roman Catholic Church. Founded in Rheims France in 1680 by Saint John Baptist de La Salle, the Brothers have been directing youth education and educational enterprises for over three centuries. Presently, the Brothers conduct schools in 84 countries worldwide. The Brothers are lay religious (not priests) who profess vows of poverty, chastity, obedience, and service to the young through education and fidelity to the call of their brotherhood.
Working in close collaboration with the Brothers is a group of dedicated lay partners who bring to the Academy a wealth of talent, expertise and experience. Because of their exemplary commitment to a Christian way of life and their support of the ideals of the Brothers’ schools, Christian Brothers Academy is enriched by their presence and their support.
