St. John’s Prep (the Prep) is an inclusive, Catholic, Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School for young men in grades 6 through 12. Founded in 1907 on the Xaverian values of compassion, humility, simplicity, trust, and zeal, the Prep educates students to be, do and stand for good in the world.
Today, 1,500 students from more than 60 communities thrive at the Prep as part of a culture that encourages students to “become their best selves, pursue excellence in all endeavors, and open hearts and minds to transformational encounters with diversity of people and experiences.”
Students at The Prep benefit from a rigorous academic program, which includes 23 AP courses and a 1:1 iPad program as part of a wireless campus. Students are taught to question everything and to seek a deeper understanding – of themselves and their classmates. Outside the classroom, students take part in a wide range of extracurricular activities. Student clubs span from Future Entrepreneurs, Cycling, Model UN, Latinos Unidos en Acción (or L.U.N.A.), to the award-winning Drama Guild (the St. John’s Prep Drama Guild is currently in first place for all time victories in the Massachusetts State Drama Festival with 19 wins). In Campus Ministry, the boys explore their faith and leadership potential through service—on brotherhood-building trips and in their own Boston area communities—and consider what kind of men they’ve been called to be.
The Prep’s athletic tradition is rooted in the founding of the school, and The Eagles have earned dozens of championship titles. Graduates have played at Fenway Park and Gillette Stadium and have competed in the Olympics. At the Prep, student-athletes develop lifelong skills, play with honor and fairness, and become confident in themselves—all while forming habits of excellence that extend far beyond the realm of athletics.
Inside and beyond the classroom, students at the Prep are encouraged to develop their personal spiritual, intellectual, moral, physical, and creative potential in a highly supportive community that celebrates the diversity of the school community and the world beyond St. John’s Prep.
