Our dedicated Board of Trustees worked for many months with Rev. John W. Swope, SJ '72, President of St. Joseph's Prep, and his leadership team, to formulate the strategic plan:

Many Parts, One Prep: The Vision for St. Joseph’s Prep

During the process, we listened to all members of the Prep community – our students, parents, colleagues, alumni and friends. Our plan calls for a greater expectation of involvement from all members of the school community – “CITIZENS, if you will, in our Prep nation!” Embracing this Prep Citizenship is vital in order for us to achieve all of the goals of this plan.

Four areas of concentration will be our pillars:

  1. LIVE our Catholic and Jesuit Mission
  2. ENHANCE Academic Excellence
  3. STRENGTHEN an Environment of Involvement, Respect & Connection
  4. SUSTAIN the Prep Mission Through Enhanced Revenue Strategies

These goals, these pillars, are ambitious. We will need strong support from our community, especially philanthropically, to achieve them. The Prep community has come through for our beloved school for more than a century and we are confident that will happen again.

We challenge each of us to rise to the calling of this new strategic rise to our calling as citizens of Prep nation!

After all…
