From St. Joseph's Preparatory School

Go anywhere in the Delaware Valley and mention the Prep and people will know the excellence produced here since 1851. They will know that a graduate of St. Joseph's Prep is more than just a scholar: they are leaders in business, in education, in law, in politics. They are "men for and with others" who serve their world.

We know that when it comes to selecting a high school, you can pick a school, or, you can choose an education. At the Prep, students get TWO educations—one in the classroom, and one from the world around them—both create bright, passionate and well-spoken young men, prepared to take on college and the world!

We're proud of our Jesuit heritage, as well as our downtown location in a thriving city like Philadelphia. With a "campus" like this, it's no wonder our students come out with a well-rounded perspective, a transformed sense of humility and justice, and an ever-open eye toward their city, their fellow citizens...and an entire world of possibilities ahead of them.
