Brother Rice Advocates Helping Others


“Brother Rice Advocates Helping Others”

Throughout our neighborhoods we can see the word “advocate” on hospital signs, church banners, and in various pieces of religious literature. Advocacy is at the core of Christian values as it centers on support of a cause. At Brother Rice High School, a group of students gather together to show support for numerous causes through the school’s Advocacy Group.

Brother Rice Welcomes New Band Director, Mr. Rich Alifantis


Brother Rice Welcomes New Band Director, Mr. Rich Alifantis

While the Crusader Crazies get the bulk of the press as the most spirited “12th man” at Brother Rice High School sporting events, there’s no denying that it is the “sis-boom-bah” of the Brother Rice/Mother McAuley Marching band that really gets the hearts of the maroon and orange fanbase pumping.  With the departure of former band director Mr. Zach Zielinski at the end of the school year last spring, the search began for a replacement who would lead with the same energy and spirit of band directors gone-by.

Robotics at the MATE ROV World Championships


The team had an amazing 2nd pool run. Alex Novak piloted the ROV beautifully, Mic Arundel was an unflappable leader and captain Peter Connolly devised a device between our first and second attempt that allowed us to complete 3 new tasks that we had never before attempted, without testing or practice! 

On their 2nd attempt the boys bested their first attempt total by 54 points! This was also 40 points better than the total that won the Midwest regional championship with!

His replacement […]
