Fairfield Prep was the best decision we could have made for our son. Over the four years at Prep, they helped him to grow from a boy to a man and truly be a Man for Others. Fairfield Prep educates the whole person- academically, spiritually and socially. Fairfield Prep has strong athletic programs but also so much more. The multitude of clubs and activities give all of the boys the opportunity to get involved and pursue their interests. Prep has prepared our son for college and beyond. The lifelong friendships and lessons he has learned at Prep are invaluable.

Despite the recent negative news regarding this school, I have a few things to say to any parent thinking of sending their child here or student who hopes of going here. First and foremost, the actions displayed at the game do not, in any way, reflect the beliefs of our student body. We are all upstanding young men, and the school spirit here is unmatched by any high school in the country and most colleges out there. The academics are great, the teachers are great, and the athletics are great; it is unfortunate that the actions of a few graduating seniors tainted our school in this way.
My son has truly found his place at Fairfield Prep. He is academically challenged by his teachers and the curriculum, but also really supported by the faculty. They truly care about the boys and the men they will become. We love Prep for the academic rigor, but even more for the emphasis on personal growth, service to others, personal excellence, and the motto that the students really embrace, "being a man for others".
