Holy Ghost Preparatory School Reviews

HGP provides a fantastic 4 year experience focused on education and helping to build young men. A very high percentage of HGP's 2020 graduating class have moved on to reputable colleges and universities across the country and internationally. My son in particular feels very well prepared for the college workload and experience, saying that learning to manage his time and workload at HGP was a major factor.
In addition to the academic preparation for college, the spiritual and emotional foundation and development provided over the 4 years are invaluable. Watching a group of boys mature into respectable young men with the guidance of like-minded families and the HGP staff and administration has been incredibly valuable and satisfying. Do your research and visit the school and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

The brotherhood, academics and faculty are truly excellent! Holy Ghost Prep provides a well rounded education along with true core values that go a long way into preparing your son for the college experience!
Holy Ghost Prep is premier. My experience goes above and beyond just the education that I received. The school has fantastic extracurricular activities for students including both athletic and non-athletic opportunities robotics and forensics. I still remain in contact with several of mine. The school has active parents groups that coordinate many events. The school offers generous scholarships. Having come from the city that was extremely helpful. Ghost is a brotherhood. I truly believe the education I received their helped me to grow as a man. Likewise, HGP has an active alumni association that puts on events throughout the year including a networking reception. I know early in my career this was helpful to be able to network with my former classmates and older alumni who helped mentor me to get where I am today. Holy Ghost is an excellent choice to not only prepare you for the next level in education but also in life. I hope to one day send any sons that I have to the school.
