The Impact of the Fordham Prep Experience

What is so impactful about the Fordham Prep experience?  How does Fordham Prep prepare our students to matriculate to the college of their choice?  Gus '23 (Ithaca College '27) and Daniel '23 (Cornell University '27) recently sat down to talk about how the Prep changed them and helped them get where they wanted to go.
