Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School has appointed Father William "Bill" Verbryke SJ (pictured) president. He will assume leadership of the school beginning July 1. Fr. Verbryke will succeed Fr. Jack Dennis SJ, who announced in September that he will return to work for the Maryland Province in his hometown of Baltimore. Fr. Verbryke will be the school's 12th president.

He is currently serving as the school’s vice president of mission and Jesuit identity and is a member of the board of trustees. Fr. Verbryke has been a full-time member of the school’s leadership team since October 2016.

He joined the Jesuit Candidates program while attending the University of Cincinnati and entered the Society of Jesus in 1973. Fr. Verbryke was ordained to the Jesuit Priesthood in 1983. This journey included serving as a faculty member at Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois; obtaining his Masters in Divinity and Theology at Berkeley; serving as director of vocations for the Midwest Province (former Chicago Province) of the Society of Jesus and returning to his alma mater, St. Xavier High School, where he served as president for 10 years. Following his service to St. Xavier, Fr. Verbryke then served as director of novices in Detroit for eight years before returning Cincinnati to serve as rector of the Jesuit Community.

Fr. Dennis has served as Brebeuf Jesuit’s president since 2012. His leadership delivered a sustained increase in enrollment, successful completion of an $8 million capital campaign and vital and innovative improvements to the campus facilities. Fr. Dennis’ commitment to ensuring that all students are successful in their calling to discover and cultivate the fullness of their God-given talents nurtured and grew Brebeuf’s vibrant and active faith community.
