Scranton Preparatory School Reviews

As a rising senior, prep has truely impacted not only my academic abilities positively, but also improved my character outside of school. The teachers are overall very knowledgeable in their subjects and really strive to prepare their students for college. On the social aspect of prep, the people you meet are all so completely different but oddly enough mesh together to form an incredible student body where everyone knows everyone and it has a family feel. Honestly everything else you can think of that prep had to offer is great in my opinion and I could not have imagined spending my high school years anywhere else. I love prep.
Review Scranton Preparatory School
Scranton Prep is known for its college prep level courses and truly preparing its students for higher level education. What many people do not realize is that Scranton Prep enhances the wonderful qualities in each of its students through a variety of extracurricular activities, service opportunities, and religious involvement. Each member of the faculty and staff takes the time to care for each of Prep's students as individuals, or cura personalis "care for the whole person."
The variety of choices is incredible! Whether you love to sing, volunteer, bake, exercise or play video games, Scranton Preparatory offers many choices. The extra-curriculars help students become involved even if the student only has twenty minutes available. Students and administrators alike participate and watch the various activities, whether it is a choir concert, sporting event or even a "Classic Club" latin song.
