Iona Preparatory Upper School

Tel: (914)632-0714
Grades: 9-12 | 771 students
Iona Prep is a school with a delightful, warm and diverse student body.
Today, Iona Prep continues to fulfill this vision and develop young men who are exceptionally well prepared for college while possessing the moral core necessary to be a leader in a society that often does not promote Catholic values.
Our Christian Brother education, which permeates the entire program at Iona Prep, is counter-cultural.
Iona Prep educates young men at a time in which self-promotion, consumerism, selfishness and personal gratification are the most visible values that adolescents see.
In contrast, the Essential Elements of a Christian Brothers' education defines an education which gives our young men the courage, moral strength and intellectual tools to be leaders in todays society.
