Going to the Prep was the best decision I ever made. I can't wait until it's yours as well."
Choosing the right high school is critical. Finding the right fit is key. If you want something different…something more…then the Prep is the place for you.
At the Prep, we teach our students to push the envelope, to look beyond themselves, and to discover all the amazing things that lie waiting for them, outside of their comfort zones. Here, young men come together from all walks of life, with new things to learn, new people to understand, new worlds to explore.

And the best part? Everyone is doing it together, so no one is ever alone. In fact, students at the Prep become part of a brotherhood that continually dares to try something different—to reach for the magis—and to stretch itself past boundaries and into new frontiers.

A Prep education offers what other schools cannot:

  • a learning experience rooted in Jesuit spirituality
  • a commitment to diverse, urban experiences
  • a Philadelphia network
  • a curriculum focused on academic excellence that paves the way for college and future success.
