 School is closed for March 21 due to weather conditions. The Junior Retreat scheduled for March 27 has been postponed until after AP exams, and Tuesday will be a regular school day for all students. The Faculty Retreat scheduled for March 28 has been cancelled and Wednesday will be a regular school day as well.


If you are over 70 ½ and thus must make a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your IRA this year, you may want to consider using your forced distribution to make a gift to The Prep instead of paying the otherwise due federal taxes on it. Many alumni use this law to their advantage by reducing their Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) which could reduce their cost for Medicare and prescription drug coverage.  So you can help The Prep and even minimize your tax exposure on your forced distribution this year.  Please consult with your financial planner.

Here is an example of a Prep alumnus - Jeff Gausepohl '61 - who has been using his Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from his IRA for several years now to help strengthen The Prep and minimize the federal taxes due on his forced distribution.

For more information about a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA to satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), please contact Matthew Cannizzo, Director of Institutional Advancement at or at (973) 736-6861.
