These letters are from young men and women who have received the benefit of a Jesuit education due the generosity of the Brooklyn Prep Alumni Association. We can all be proud of what the BPAA has been able to accomplish since the closing of the Prep over 30 years ago.
Dear Fr. Fitzpatrick,
My name is Charlie Kaczor and I am a freshman at Xavier High School in the Class of
2016. I live in Brooklyn and I'm very grateful for the generous support that has made my
experience and amazing education here at Xavier possible through the Brooklyn Prep
Speaking of this experience, it has been a great one! I have joined the band. With the
amazing Dr. Pace, I have continued my musical education, racking up my list of playable
instruments. I am even considering switching from my current alto saxophone to the
violin. I have recently joined the Polish-American Club, embracing my European
heritage. I am very excited to learn not only about the history of Polandbut the
traditions. I may even find a friend who speaks Polish as well.
I have also managed to maintain second honors. I have pushed through Algebra, my
favorite subject, and I am even doing well in Latin, the most awe-inspiring and absolutely
terrifying subject in Xavier. All of this made possible through my scholarship, which
helped me decide to pick Xavier as my school.
I really want you to know how much the Brooklyn Prep Alumni Scholarship means to me
and again thank you so much for your concern for students like me at Xavier High
School. Have an amazing end of spring and a wondrous summer!
Charlie Kaczor' 16
