Mr. Tom “Brody” Broderick, longtime history teacher, Assistant Headmaster and Dean of Students, is the school’s unofficial scholar of all things supernatural. Correspondent Khaly Barry ask Brody and a few students to share ghost stories.

“Do I think Bergamini is haunted? Yes.”

“There’s a belief that this girl’s ghost is walking around the attic.”

“Is that ghost roaming around? Who knows?”
