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.
