Fordham Prep Admissions

I am so 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 Spring Open House will take place on Wednesday, May 23, 2018, from 6 - 8 pm.  For current 8th grade boys we also invite you to take part in our Ram for a Day program where you can spend the full day at Fordham Prep in the company of a freshman.  We also invite prospective students and families to tour the Prep during our regularly scheduled weekday tours.  

Finally, make sure to visit our How To Apply page for detailed information on our application process.  For those prospective students who are not yet in 8th grade, fill out our Inquiry Form so we can keep you posted on all the great things our students accomplish here.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at or 718-584-8367.  

Hail, men of Fordham, hail!
