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'
I wanted to go to this school. The unprofessionalism of the school kept me from attending. They mixed up my paperwork and then placed me on a waiting list. The freshman class was full and i was denied. I cannot belive that people pay thousands of dollars for that. It was a waste of my time and money, save yourself the aggervation, dont even apply.
Graduating from Fairfield Prep is like getting 2 years of college. Your education is not only from books, but a way of life that will last forever. The Jesuit methods of teaching opens your horizons and lets you think out of the square. They also give you an opportunity to appreciate your religion then and for life. Their connection to Fairfield University, which is in the same beautiful New England countryside, allows the graduate the opportunity to further his education under the same philosophies.
There is a reason why prep alumnai send their kids there. It is challengeing academically, physically, and mentally. Classes in the classroom are amazing while clubs and sports as well as community service are all important parts of the prep envirenment. Creating men for others is the chief goal as prep attempts to make young men ready to serve their community.
