    The school provides a welcoming embrace for all students with multitudinous opportunities to discover unique and special talents. The wide range of student backgrounds and hometowns creates distinct connections that can transcend the normal high school friendship. The freedom and responsibility required to attend Prep are daunting at first, but young boys quickly transform into complex, caring and compassionate men by the time they leave the doors at Grand and Warren in Jersey City.

    St. Peter's is without a doubt one of the best high school educations you can receive in New Jersey. In terms of academics, I've only had a problem with one teacher and every class I've been in has been both fun and fulfilling. The students are kind and helpful and it's easy to find a friend group full of people you never would've met without coming to Prep. The only lacking thing about Prep is its cafeteria, but that doesn't even matter since it's location and a very safe part of Jersey City means that students have access to places with much better food. Overall, Prep is an amazing school that will help prepare you for college and life after college.
    As part of its Catholic and specifically Jesuit identity, Prep looks to emphasize education coupled with contemplation in action, including by offering service trips. I went on a trip to Camden and each day consisted of both active service and intentional conversations and reflection in small groups. I found the trip to be a week of genuine fraternity among Prep brothers and a great spiritual consolation.These powerful moments make me very grateful to Prep for providing these immersion trips and making our faith something lived out intentionally. These values set it apart and complement the outstanding coursework.
