Brother Martin traces its history to 1869, making it the second oldest all-male catholic school in New Orleans. In 1869 New Orleans Archbishop Jean Marie Odin invited the Brothers of the Sacred Heart to open a school in New Orleans, St. Aloysius opened on September 26, 1869 with six students. In 1892 the school was moved to a larger campus on the corner of Esplanade and Rampart avenues, in 1969 for the second time in the school's history it moved again under the newly changed name of Brother Martin High School. The combination came about after the Brothers of the Sacred Heart decided that expansion and cost saving would be better achieved with one school on the larger Cor Jesu campus. In 1969, after celebrating the school's 100th anniversary, the school was renamed after Brother Martin Hernandez, a brother of the Sacred Heart who was principal of St. Aloysius from 1934 to 1949 and also a noted athlete, having been named to the New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame in 1980. A great book has been published about the history of Brother Martin High School in New Orleans. Please visit http://boshbook.com/ to learn more.
