Welcome to the Fairfield College Preparatory School website! We are pleased to introduce you to the life and vitality which makes this Jesuit, Catholic high school for boys in grades 9 through 12 such a wonderful experience in learning and growth.
Fairfield Prep is one of the 46 Jesuit high schools in the United States, seeking to educate young men in "letters, learning, and Christian life" as Jesuits and our colleagues have done all over the world, ever since St. Ignatius Loyola in 1548 sent a group of ten of the best members of his newly-founded Society of Jesus to open a school in Messina, Italy.
Located on the beautiful 200 acre campus of Fairfield University, Fairfield Prep has, from the beginning, been known for the excellence of our academic programs and the strength of our many athletic teams and extracurricular activities. We are most fortunate in our access to the University's athletic facilities and fields, library, chapel, and Quick Center for the Arts. At the heart of the "Prep experience" is the relationship between our students and dedicated faculty. Always we go beyond the classroom, seeking to form men of competence, compassion, and commitment as leaders for tomorrow's world.
Fairfield Prep is a very special place, where "men for others" grow in an atmosphere that is challenging, fun and caring. We warmly invite you to come visit us in person!
