Since 1944, the Prep family has been busy helping parents in northeastern Pennsylvania raise their children to become the people God created them to be: people who are well prepared for college, but more -- people who know that they are loved by God and that they are called to begin “setting the world on fire,” one square foot at a time, with all they have learned and experienced at Scranton Prep.

At Prep, we live out the everyday miracle of Catholic and Jesuit education.

We begin doing that by accepting smart young people who have the capacity and willingness to develop the many talents with which God has blessed them.  We welcome these young people into our community and challenge them, throughout their time with us, to grow in all sorts of ways:  intellectually, athletically, artistically, socially and spiritually.  

We seek to educate and form men and women for others, men and women whose faith shapes their lives, men and women whose lives give greater glory to God.

I hope you will talk with our teachers, our coaches, our alumni, our current students and their parents. They will tell you more than any website ever can about what it means to be part of the Prep family.

I can promise you this:  Scranton Prep is a great place to be a 14-18 year old human being.  Come and see for yourself!

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam,

Fr. Ryan Maher, SJ
