There are several pros associated with this school: instilling a sense of purpose and becoming "Men for Others," is of utmost importance. Students are academically challenged from the start. The campus is incredible, facilities immaculate, and the history of the school is incredibly rich. I also really enjoyed the religious element; I most enjoyed "World Religions," where I learned about inclusivity and open-mindedness through carefully studying and understanding other religious systems and beliefs. The one negative for me was how conservative and non-diverse the school is; you will experience your fair share of rich kids. Your typical kid at Prep will spout whatever political/religious jargon their well-off parents spewed at home, without thinking about it critically and how policies/actions will affect "normal" people -- which can become quite hypocritical, given the school's motto: "Men for Others." Students of varying income levels and backgrounds need to be better incorporated.

I'm really proud of being a Hoya and I will for sure miss the school. Amazing teachers, academics, and school spirit here! The school already has both great international and domestic reputation and I really recommend the parents to consider sending kids here.

But, diversity (Ideas, Religions, Race, etc.) needs to grow and the cafetaria food is personally SO-SO.

Overall: 92/100
Others have noted the academic rigor, excellent facilities, and caring community. But what sets Prep apart is what they do best: they turn boys into men. Our only regret is that we had but one son to send the Prep.

No school is perfect, including Prep. But Prep grads are absolutely prepared for college and for life beyond school. And they are important restive young men. Ten years after graduation, my son’s closest friend is a Prep classmate he met at the beginning of freshman year. And the preparation he received and the connections he made at Prep have been invaluable over the past decade.

For those seeking “diversity”—whatever that means—look somewhere else. Prep neither shirks from nor apologizes for its Jesuit identity, for that is at the heart of the school’s success. You don’t have to be Catholic to embrace Prep—we’re not, and I will steadfastly maintain that sending our son there was one of the best parenting decisions we ever made.
