Why Prep?

The Fairfield Prep Brotherhood

A bond that forms at Prep and lasts well beyond the four years of a Prep education.

Education of the Whole Person

A Prep education encompasses more than just learning in a classroom. Prep students are taught how to exercise empathy in every day situations, to engage those with differing viewpoints and to challenge themselves in being young men of conscience.

A Place for All Boys

At Prep, you can excel in whatever you put your mind to. We offer opportunities for exploration and growth in academics, athletics, the arts, and a wide array of extracurricular activities.
