Tradition Runs Deep Here...

Not only throughout decades of Jesuit education, or across generations of Philadelphians, but also deeply rooted in simply how we do things. The Prep is a special place, with a family, a faculty, and an Ignatian identity unlike any other in the Philadelphia region. There’s a reason students have flocked here for over 163 years, and thrived for countless more.

Discover Why

The Prep is getting ready to welcome its 32nd President, Fr. John Swope, S.J. '72, this coming July. We sat down with Fr. Swope to learn a little more about him, his childhood here in Philly, his years at the Prep, and his take on returning to his alma mater as its next leader. Below is a clip from our conversation.
