Boarding at Prep
As the only Jesuit boarding school in the U.S., we take our commitment to cura personalis - care for the entire person - seriously. Our staff includes nine full-time members, including several teachers, a college counselor, and an athletic trainer. With just over 100 boarders and a total of 17 residential staff, our boarding program fosters a close-knit community where students receive supervision and guidance from a variety of different individuals and perspectives.
Whether helping a student with his homework, counseling a boarder about a problem, or playing basketball in the gym, our dorm parents strive to develop each young man’s potential and character. Our staff is dedicated to creating a safe, supportive and fun environment while serving as positive role models and mentors. We want you to call Prep your home.
In such a small community, students get to live with their best friends and get a head start in preparing for college dorm life.
