An Invitation to Support the Prep

Dear Prep Citizens,

I am struck by the gratitude I have for the support that so many of you have shown to the Prep. It is hard to put it into words, indeed. Throughout the years, alumni, parents and friends have helped to ensure the stability and growth of our mission. The Prep relies heavily on the kindness of our Prep citizens to provide the high-quality Jesuit education that we have been known for since 1851.

There are so many terrific stories of how one person's Prep experience has inspired him or her to pass it on, pay it forward and give so future Preppers can could do the same. There are many more stories to tell and each one makes a difference to the Prep!

When you give to the Prep it makes a difference in the lives of our students and our faculty. It helps a young man experience a Catholic, Jesuit education. It supports our clubs and activities and athletic programs. It allows our students to live our mission through service trips and Kairos retreats. The future of the Prep depends on you and your support of the mission of the Prep.
Your impact changes lives!

I am proud to be a Prep alum, to be connected to this amazing place. I know you are too. Thank you again for all you do to support the Prep mission. I am forever grateful.


Rev. John W. Swope, SJ '72
