The vision of St. Ignatius, the founder of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), animates all of our work at Saint Peter’s Preparatory School. Whether it’s while playing basketball in our courtyard or performing research in the library, praying on retreat or serving meals in a nearby shelter, Prep seeks to provide its students with everyday experiences of God.
What makes Prep distinctly “Jesuit”? According to the Society of Jesus’ Characteristics of a Jesuit Education, “…The aim of Jesuit education has never been simply the acquisition of a store of information and skills or preparation for a career, though these are important in themselves and useful to emerging Christian leaders. The ultimate aim of a Jesuit [high school] is, rather, that full growth of the person which leads to action – action that is suffused with the spirit and presence of Jesus Christ.”
The entire Prep staff shares in bringing this mission to our students, helped in part by the work of the Office of Campus Ministry, which seeks to develop and maintain the school’s Ignatian mission and identity. Our comprehensive program of liturgies, reflection, retreats, and service work allows our students to grow in their faith and deepen their relationship to Christ and others.
