Academically not bad, but rude students. Boys here don't know how to act around women (ie. stop swearing) which was recently discussed at a fundraiser I attended. One young man recently admitted to this school was thrown off his school bus by his former local K-8 school for hitting girls on the bus-- documented on video and viewed by his parents. . Obviously Prep not aware of this boy's record since he was protected by his former principal by being removed from the bus vs. suspended - thus academic record unmarred. In light of what is going on with the NFL, etc. a boy like this is on the same track as Ray Rice. Not a place for creating character.
I went to school here several years ago. The teachers and administrators were professional and dedicated to serving their students. I would recommend this school to anyone. Despite the high cost, it is worth every penny.
Going to Fairfield Prep is the best thing I ever did for myself. Prep challenges its students in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and in the real world. Students are asked repeatedly to consider the hard questions about life in school and through service experiences to many different areas of the world from Mexico and Ecuador to just down the road in Bridgeport, CT. Students have the option to participate in retreats which help each individual to find himself and God at least once a year. The Prep brotherhood truly lasts a lifetime and fellow alumni are constantly staying in touch with each other. Prep really turns its students into 'Men for Others'
