IT'S SUMMER 2019 AT THE PREP!
For pre-7th and pre-8th grade boys and girls
Get a high school experience and great exposure to St. Joseph's Prep, its teachers and unique academic experience -- all while gaining close-knit friendships and Philly experience that makes the Prep so special. Also, experience daily guest speakers and weekly theme days!
From classic "prepare-U" courses like English and Math, to contemporary hits like Media and Technology, Leadership and Improv Comedy, Prep U students can learn a lot this summer at the Prep! Plus, since it's held right here at the school -- at 1733 W. Girard Avenue in Philadelphia -- kids also get a taste of what it's like to go to school in the city! Click here for the full brochure.
July 8-26 | 8:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.
CAN'T COME THE ENTIRE 3 WEEKS? No problem! We've priced our 3-week camp the same as a 2-week session, to make it affordable, so if your child has to miss a portion of the camp, that's ok!
Yes, we offer busing from your neighborhood! This year, we will offer busing "hubs" to make scheduling simpler and more affordable. We also offer shuttles to and from Suburban Station for those who want to take Regional Rail or live in Center City.
The buses run each morning from approximately 6:45 a.m. (depending on your pickup hub) until they drop kids at the Prep by 8:15 a.m. Then they load up again once classes are over at the Prep at 2:15 pm to head back home. Bus fee (see below) would be in addition to the Prep U fee, and you may choose a transportation option during the registration process.

Depending on passenger load, your route may be serviced by either a bus or a van. For those familiar with the Prep’s transportation and busing during the school year, please note that the Summer program uses different routes. During both the summer and the school year, we do our best to meet all the transportation needs of the Prep community.
