History & Tradition

Explore the Rich History of Our Jesuit Catholic High School

At Fordham Preparatory School, we retain strong ties to the past. In fact, our roots trace all the way back to the middle of the 19th century, when our private high school was established as part of St. John’s College by Rev. John Hughes. These days, our talented faculty members uphold many of our classic, founding values, while simultaneously keeping their sights set on the future.
