Tradition Runs Deep Here...

Not only throughout decades of Jesuit education, or across generations of Philadelphians, but also deeply rooted in simply how we do things. The Prep is a special place, with a family, a faculty, and an Ignatian identity unlike any other in the Philadelphia region. There’s a reason students have flocked here for over 163 years, and thrived for countless more.
