Scranton Prep is a second home to me, a second family. The Scranton Prep family has impacted me tremendously inside the classroom but also outside of the classroom. They very much prepare you for college with their "college ready" classes and do a great job assisting in the admission process. The school spirit is astounding and motivates all students; past, present and future to attend all games and matches of their fellow peers. The facilities we are provided with are always clean and in tip-top condition. The academics are challenging to prepare us for college, but the faculty makes it interesting and is always there to help when needed. I love Scranton Prep and would not want to trade my high school experience for anything.

Cannot get any better than Prep. Academics are top notch. Athletic facilities, teams, and staffs are above and beyond the rest of NEPA. Teachers are fantastic. Can really build your own schedule junior and senior year and truly discover who you are. Prep makes you be more and develop both your mind and heart. Service opportunities are phenomenal. School is always something to look forward to. Prep is a second home and a family. Facilities are top notch. Everything about prep is first rate I can write a book about it.
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.
