In your prayers, please remember the soul of Charles J. Beirne, S.J., '56 who passed away recently. A native of Jersey City, Fr. Beirne entered the Society of Jesus in 1956. His 54 years as a Jesuit saw him take on many roles, including the presidency of LeMoyne College from 2000-2007.
Prep’s Office of Institutional Advancement – which encompasses the Offices of Alumni Relations, Annual Giving, Communications and Special Events – works to advance the school’s overall mission of forming men of competence, conscience and compassion by securing continued financial support and thus ensuring the stability of New Jersey’s Jesuit High School. With the start of the new fiscal year on July 1, some of the faces in the department have changed, but the commitment to keeping a Prep education within reach for future generations of students and families remains the same.
Construction crews have made a major breakthrough – literally – as work progresses on Prep's new cafeteria, music facilities, and classrooms set to open with the new school year. Visit our latest construction photo gallery to see this transformation in progress!
