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 student discover and hone their abilities. Ultimately, our graduates learn to question to pray, to love, to serve, and to lead 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. Our Fall Open House will take place on Sunday, October 28, 2018 from 1-4 pm.  

Our application for the Fordham Prep Class of 2023 opens on September 1, 2018.  On this date, 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 over the summer.
