Back-to-School Night is an opportunity for Prep parents and guardians to meet their sons' teachers as we begin a new school year. The program will include a brief introductory overview followed by a simulated school day with an abbreviated schedule during which parents can visit a typical day's classes. 
Sophomore, Junior and Senior Parents:  Back-to-School Night is Thursday, September 16.
Freshman Parents:  Back-to-School Night is Tuesday, September 21

It Begins: Prep Set to Celebrate a New School Year

The desks are aligned in perfect rows. The floors are freshly waxed. The books are piled neatly. Students and faculty alike have completed their orientation activities. The fall athletes have completed their preseason preparations. The finishing touches are being put on new facilities on campus. Summer is soon to be but a memory, and Prep is ready to begin a new school year once more.

Catch Prep Football's Opener on the Marauder Radio Network

Prep Football kicks off a new season Saturday night at 7 p.m. The #1 team in's preseason rankings travels to Rutgers Stadium to meet fellow Jesuit powerhouse Saint Joseph's Prep from Philadelphia. If you can't be there, make sure to listen in live on the Marauder Radio Network, where John Kelly, '04 will bring you all the action.

The football opener is part of a busy athletic weekend, as Prep Soccer visits Union City Friday at 7 p.m. and Cross Country runs in the Saint Dom's Invitational Saturday morning at 9 a.m. in Lincoln Park.

The "Welcome to Prep-Family Mass & Picnic"

On Sunday, September 19, the Prep Parents' Association and the Prep Alumni Association will once again team up to present the Prep Family Mass and Picnic. Mass at 11:30 a.m. in the former Burke Hall cafeteria will be followed by a potluck picnic in the Warren Street Plaza and Prep Courtyard. All Prep families – those of current students and alumni alike – are welcome, and we'd like to extend a special invitation to the Class of 2014 as we welcome the freshmen and their families to the Prep community!

Welcome, Class of 2014!

They have come, 260 strong, from as near as Warren Street in Jersey City, and as far as Holmdel and even Fairfield County, Connecticut. They represent families of every ethnic and economic background, and are the best and brightest from grammar schools throughout the region. They are the Prep Class of 2014, and they are our pride and our glory. And on Thursday morning, they began a four-year journey that will see them experience Jesuit education and grow from boys into young men.
