Fordham Prep's mission is to form leaders in faith, scholarship, and service through a college preparatory education in the Catholic Jesuit tradition. 


Fordham Preparatory School is an all-male, Jesuit Catholic high school, located in The Bronx, NY. Our commitment to education is shaped by the spirituality and pedagogical tradition of the Society of Jesus, founded in 1540 by St. Ignatius Loyola. Fordham Prep stresses the development of excellence in the whole person: intellectual, religious, social, emotional, and physical. Today, our educational apostolate is strengthened by our affiliation with the local, national and international networks of Jesuit secondary schools.

At the heart of Jesuit education is the rigorous study of the humanities and the sciences, reflecting the conviction that the study of great ideas is inextricably linked to the formation of character. Our academic curriculum and program of studies encompasses more than the acquisition of knowledge; it fosters academic discipline and encourages reflection in the pursuit of excellence.

Fordham Prep's curriculum is designed to help students discover and hone individual talents and abilities; it encompasses more than the acquisition of knowledge but demands the training of the intellect; it exposes students not only to their strengths, but also to those courses and areas that will challenge them; and provides students with time for extra help and consultation with the faculty: every teacher, every day. Our honors program allows each student to craft a personal curriculum. In addition to our collection of courses, our college preparatory high school can also help your son find the right path to a higher education at some of the top colleges in the nation. Outside of the classroom, we also feature a great selection of clubs, events, and sports as part of our boys' high school athletics programs.
