Welcome to Prep

Something happens between the time a 14-year-old boy enrolls and an 18-year-old young man graduates from Fairfield Prep.Of course, he has completed an outstanding, rigorous college preparatory education conducted in and out of the classroom. He has discovered new interests, debated ideas, grown in faith, played on a sports team, performed on stage and learned more about the world around him through an education steeped in values.

But he also has gained a sense that looking outward — rather than focusing on himself — is the most important. At Prep, we call this idea "Men for Others." Rooted in our Jesuit Catholic tradition — and stretching back to the founder of the Jesuits, St. Ignatius of Loyola — we educate and challenge our boys to reach outside of themselves to learn about their community and their world through serving others. In the classroom and through athletics, in after-school activities and through service, Prep boys learn about themselves and God.

We invite you to learn more about the Prep, the Prep experience, and the proud tradition of "Men for Others."
