As a Jesuit, all-male, Catholic, college preparatory school, Fordham Prep's mission is to inspire young men to reflect, to question, to learn, to pray, to love, to serve, to lead.
Since 1841, we have based our challenging curriculum and pursuit of human and academic excellence on a foundation of Catholic faith and principles.
We seek to be one community created from a broad spectrum of ethnic, racial, geographic, and socio-economic backgrounds.
We strive to include qualified students of limited financial resources by providing substantial financial assistance. Our faculty and staff dedicate themselves to a caring and dynamic interaction with students both inside and outside the classroom, a characteristic of Jesuit education for over 450 years.
We educate our students to be men for others: spiritually motivated, intellectually accomplished and committed to promoting justice.

School Notes

Faith, Scholarship and Service are the foundations of Jesuit education. Praying, studying and working together: the spirit of magis and cura personalis inspires our communal life.

  • Magis ("greater") is a distinctive aspect of Jesuit education, and expresses the responsibility to seek a greater realization of our potential and mission, and to strive for excellence in all things. Fordham Prep is dedicated to the development of a curriculum and community that call forth the best from students and staff for the greater glory of God.
  • Cura personalis ("care of the individual") is the Jesuit resolve to know and treat each person as an individual made in the image and likeness of God.  Cura personalis encourages students and staff to build relationships, both in and out of the classroom, based on dignity, respect and trust.
  • Diversity  Our students live in the Bronx, Westchester, Manhattan, Queens, Long Island, Putnam, Dutchess and Orange counties, Connecticut  and New Jersey. They come from a wide range of ethnic, racial, geographic, economic and religious backgrounds.
  •  Our Location  Fordham Prep is located in the Bronx on the 85-acre Rose Hill Campus of Fordham University, adjacent to Fordham Road, Metro North and the New York Botanical Garden. Our students travel to school each day by Metro North trains, Westchester and NYC buses, subway, car and on foot.
