Fordham Prep Admissions

I am thrilled that you are interested in finding out more about Fordham Preparatory School.

Founded in 1841, Fordham Prep is a Catholic, Jesuit, college preparatory high school for boys. Our curriculum is designed to help students discover and hone their abilities. Ultimately, our graduates learn to question to pray, to love, to serve and to lead both in college and beyond.

The Fordham Prep experience focuses on Faith, Scholarship and Service. Outside of the classroom, our students have the opportunity to take advantage of unique clubs and activities, one of the most successful athletic programs in New York State, and travel the world.  

Because of our rigorous academic coursework and challenging and engaging co-curricular programs, Fordham Prep graduates are prepared to attend the best colleges in the country and the world. On average 60% of Fordham Prep graduates matriculate to colleges rated as "Most Competitive" or "Highly Competitive" as rated by Barron's Profile in American Colleges.

I invite you to see firsthand how transformative the Fordham Prep experience can be and to visit our historic Rose Hill campus. We will host two Open House events this fall; Thursday, October 17, from 6-8 pm and on Sunday, November 3, from 1-4 pm.  Registration is required and opens in the fall.

Also in early September, registration for our Ram for a Day program, by which current 8th graders can spend a full day in the company of a freshman, will also open. We invite prospective students and families to tour the Prep during the admissions season. Details about each can be found by navigating to the How to Visit section of our website.  You may also peruse our viewbook for more information about the Fordham Prep experience.
