Catholic Education

Empowering Young Men to Live as Disciples of Jesus Christ in Our World Today

As a Catholic, college preparatory school, we seek to foster the growth of young men in a way that is fully consistent with the teaching of the Catholic Church. We do that mindful of the fact that many of our students are not Catholic, but who share with us a set of values and priorities that enable them to join with us fully.

Spiritual Guidance

We offer pastoral and personal counseling though the services of our Roman Catholic priests and many talented laypeople who are involved in Campus Ministry and Guidance.

Learn More

Catholic Values

Respect for the inherent dignity of all humans. Striving for personal excellence. Compassion. Cooperation. Critical thinking.Solidarity with the poor.

Learn More

Social Justice

Catholic social teaching is a central and essential part of our faith and is based upon and inseparable from our understanding of human life and human dignity.

Campus Diversity

Diversity of Students. Diversity of Experience. Diversity in Education

A graduate “values a diversity of philosophical, cultural, historical, aesthetic, and linguistic expressions. He also values the insights of other faith communities, and seeks to promote harmony and mutual understanding.


Service to Others

Fostering a student's intellectual growth rooted in a spiritual awareness

Central to the educational experience at The Prep is engaging in service to those in need. We offer a wide variety of experiences, ranging from Mission trips far across the country to tutoring students here in West Orange. Models of service frequently visit The Prep and share their experiences with us, including such notables as Detective Steven McDonald and Sr. Helen Prejean.

"We are called to be leaven for transforming the world, agents for bringing about a kingdom of love and justice."
Sharing Catholic Social Teaching, US Bishops, 1998
