Iona Preparatory Upper School

  • 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.
