Fast Facts About Fairfield Prep

Fairfield Prep is a vibrant place. It is a school with strong academic programs, but also a place where students are encouraged to learn and grow after the bell rings at 2:30 p.m.

Fairfield Prep is a school where boys discover their many gifts and grow into young men of true character. It’s a place of academic discourse, of artistic expression and of enriching service toward others.

Fairfield Prep hosts championship-winning athletic teams, but also encourages students of all athletic abilities to strive for their own personal goals.

We believe in educating the whole person (cura personalis), and so we offer a host of engaging activities that foster the intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual growth of our students.
