Prep Edge

Daily, Live, Face-to-Face Learning & House System

Fairfield Prep is pleased to announce a new learning model for the start of the 2020-21 academic year: PREP Edge.

PREP Edge — which stands for Engaged, Daily, Guided Education — will allow for daily, live, face-to-face learning within the Fairfield Prep weekly block schedule. Students will be divided into two houses — Loyola House and Ignatius House — and each house will attend class on campus during alternating days to lower density in our school buildings and allow us to meet and exceed health guidelines for cohorts and physical distancing.

President Christian J. Cashman and Principal Dr. Tommy de Quesada provided all of the specifics about PREP Edge in an email sent to Prep families on Aug. 14.
