Fordham Preparatory School
- New York
Founded in 1841, Fordham Prep is a Catholic Jesuit college preparatory school for young men located on the Rose Hill Bronx campus adjacent to Fordham University in New York City. With approximately 1,000 students enrolled in grades 9-12, Fordham Prep draws young men of diverse backgrounds from throughout the boroughs of New York City and its surrounding suburbs.
Fordham Prep’s mission is to inspire young men to reflect, to question, to learn, to pray, to love, to serve and to lead. Its challenging curriculum and pursuit of human and academic excellence are based on a foundation of Catholic faith and principles. The school seeks to be one community drawn from a broad spectrum of ethnic, racial, geographic and socio-economic backgrounds. We strive to include qualified students of limited financial resources by providing substantial financial assistance. Our faculty and staff dedicate themselves to a caring and dynamic interaction with students both inside and outside the classroom, a characteristic of Jesuit education for over 450 years. Fordham Prep educates its students to be men for others: spiritually motivated, intellectually accomplished and committed to promoting justice.
