Fairfield College Preparatory School is by tradition and choice a Jesuit, Catholic high school of excellence.
The mission of Fairfield Prep is to offer its students the finest preparation for college; to inspire in its students a lifelong love of learning; to invite each student to deepen his relationship with God; to encourage each student’s social, cultural and physical development; and to challenge its students to become leaders, living as men of conscience, compassion and action.
Fairfield Prep strives to accomplish this mission by demonstrating personal care and concern for all of its students and by celebrating their unique gifts and diversity.
In turn, students are expected to become responsible participants in the Prep community and beyond and are encouraged to use their talents in the service of others, especially to those in need.
