Holy Ghost Preparatory School Reviews

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.

As a HGP graduate from 1982, and still involved in many of the school's activities, I can state with complete confidence how superior of an education HGP offers. To evidence this, you'll find that in 2018, 74 out of 117 students graduated "With Honors", a 63.25% ratio, including 20 graduates earning the highest honor of "Summa Cum Laude", which is a cumulative 4-year grade point average of 4.15 and higher. Add in a 10:1 personalized Teacher Ratio, State Championships in various athletics including Soccer, Basketball, Golf, Tennis, and Track, and a High School renowned as THE Best Forensics program in the State of PA, and you come to realize this isn't just a HS, but a culture that emphasizes superior college preparation, fostering the development of young men intellectually, spiritually, and morally, who become a part of a long-term community, "In One Heart and One Mind". I'm honored to be a part of this outstanding community.
HGP has been an incredible school for my sons. We were interested in continuing their single-sex, values based education and Ghost has proven to be the school that we hoped it would be. Caring faculty who serve as terrific role models and mentors, state-champion level athletics, and opportunities to participate in international service trips and in extra-curriculars that they otherwise might not have been exposed to....Ghost has aided in their development as scholars and global citizens.

We'd recommend it for any family looking to educate their son in a spirit of service, compassion, and intellectual curiosity.
