    Fairfield Prep is an incredible school that will prepare you for the real world. The curriculum at Fairfield Prep is very rigorous and in order to succeed here, you will need to work very hard. There are many opportunities for our young men to get involved at this school such as drama, sports, and many clubs. Succeeding here will allow you to apply to the most rigorous universities around the country. There are many great teachers here as well, but not all! Be prepared to deal with some unreasonable teachers. If you work hard, you are set. Some small cons are the lack of courses that are found in other schools such as AP economics and AP psychology. However, you will find many opportunities to challenge yourself here through AP and honors classes. If you are an 8th grader at the moment of reading this, I hope you will consider Fairfield Prep.

    Fairfield Prep has not only given my sons an amazing education but has taught them some of the more important life skills. The motto "Men for Others" rings true on a daily basis with the many service and volunteer opportunities. The boy going in comes out a very accomplished man ready for the many challenges ahead. My oldest recently graduated from college and was beyond prepared for the rigorous academics. My current student absolutely loves the atmosphere and is always eager to get to school. Prep is a very special place where boys learn to support each other and make their life long friends. Grateful that my boys will be Alum from this wonderful institution. Go Prep!
    Fairfield Prep has opened doors for me and my family. This school is very rigorous, but you will be well prepared to tackle the real world and succeed in college. I highly recommend this school for low income minorities. At Prep, you will be challenged not only to learn, but to explore your interests at a deeper level. Prep has amazing facilities for student success through SEED. Also, Prep’s numerous clubs and activities allows students to explore their interests at a deeper level. Lastly, you will see the value of a Prep education when you get into great colleges and succeed in them. Work hard, get involved, and Fairfield Prep will prepare you for success.
