Prep's classrooms lay largely empty on Wednesday, but learning was still the order of the day. Prep Day, a longtime rite of spring at Grand & Warren, meant students were visiting museums, taking in live performances, exploring Jersey City and New York, and participating in hands-on learning experiences.

Prep's 2017 Arrupe Week – marking the 20th year of the Arrupe Lecture Series – began with a Monday morning assembly, featuring the keynote address by Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad, Ph.D., professor of history, race, and public policy at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. Dr. Muhammad – the first Prep parent ever featured as an Arrupe keynote speaker – opened the weeklong examination of mass incarceration in the United States. He offered a historical overview of policies and conditions that have contributed to the U.S. accounting for 5% of the world's total population, but 25% of its prison population.
