President Anthony Day

Anthony Day was named as the first full-time lay President of Fordham Preparatory School in the fall of 2022.  He began his tenure in the summer of 2023 and was officially installed at the Mass of the Holy Spirit on September 8, 2023.  Mr. Day is the 37th individual to lead the institution since its founding in 1841.  

Upon his appointment, Mario Ciampi '78, Chairman of the Fordham Prep Board of Trustees, said:

"His experience as a leader in Jesuit education convincingly elevated him.  Anthony is the perfect leader to help us build on our strong position both inside and outside of the classroom.  Recognizing his deep commitment to our Catholic Jesuit mission of Faith, Scholarship and Service, the Board and I are excited to partner with him to further every aspect of that mission."

At his formal induction at the Mass of the Holy Spirit, Mr. Day addressed the Prep community saying:

" assured that I will listen. I have a lot to learn, and I will do my very best to get to know each of you, to accompany each of you on your individual and unique journeys, to make each of you a priority, and to collaborate with you as we continue to make Fordham Prep the absolute best version of itself.  Let us continue to march forward, proudly representing this community and confidently proclaiming, ‘Hail Men of Fordham."
