Maps & Directions to Fordham Prep

open house

Fordham Prep will host its annual OPEN HOUSE on Sunday, October 29th, 2017, from 1:00 - 4:00 PM.  During Open House, you will have the opportunity to visit  academic departments and speak with our faculty, choose to hear directly from parents, students, and administrators during open panels, and visit with interscholastic athletic coaches and co-curricular club moderators.  This will all take place on the historic Rose Hill campus in the Prep's Shea Hall and Leonard Theatre.  *Note - Fordham Prep's Open House is self-guided.*

In order to save time that day you may fill out our registration form online by clicking the link found HERE.


We are happy to host prospective students and parents for tours each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday during the fall admissions season.  Tours begin promptly at 9:15 am and last approximately 75-90 minutes.  Space is limited for each tour.  If you are interested in attending a tour, please contact us at  Please include the date you would like to attend and the total number of people in your party.  There is open space available on the following tour dates:

October -  17, 24, 26, 31

November - 2, 8, 15, 16, 28, 29

December - 5, 6, 7, 13, 14


In order to make a more informed high school choice, all prospective 8th graders are invited to spend a day with a current freshman as part of our Ram for a Day program.  Visitors will shadow a current 9th graders and attend all his classes to experience what it is like to be a Fordham Prep student.  

Registration for Ram for a Day is available only after a prospective student has filled out an online application to Fordham Prep.  You can access the application by clicking this LINK.  Once you have completed the application, you will receive a link with instructions on how to register for Ram for a Day in your confirmation email.

Please note that Ram for a Day is only open to 8th grade boys and that space each day offered is limited.
