Diversity at Prep
A diverse student population is essential to Fairfield Prep’s mission to form young men of intellectual competence, compassion, conscience and commitment to social justice. Fairfield College Prep Schools is one of the most diverse academic intuitions in lower Fairfield County.
The dimensions of diversity includes but is not limited to race, ethnicity, class, gender, religion and socio-economic status to name a few. At Fairfield Prep, we attempt to address certain dimensions of diversity that are consonant with our mission as a Jesuit, Catholic school of excellence.
Since its inception three decades ago, Fairfield Prep has sought to achieve a greater inclusivity through SEED (Students for Educational Excellence through Diversity).
The SEED program's goal is to maximize the academic potential of each student. The program is primarily focused on providing support services for students from diverse backgrounds, including socio-economic, racial, cultural, religious and geographic.
As Prep seeks to foster compassion and a commitment to justice in our students, we believe it is important to bring to the forefront the wide array of multicultural viewpoints so that we can develop young men who are equipped to thrive in an increasingly global world.
SEED parents and students attend workshops where they have the opportunity to hear from alumni, teachers, and/ or administrators about current topics that pertains to student achievement and success. Meetings are held three times during the academic year (Fall, Winter, and Spring).
