"Excellent middle and high school, top notch students and staff!"
Rebecca, parent
"Great place for students to develop themselves and prepare for college and beyond. Each student is treated as an individual, instead of a number like other larger schools. The faculty and staff are well trained and prepared for their positions, and the extracurricular programs let students explore their interests in a friendly environment."
Seanan, Recent alum from Hong Kong
"First hand examples of the SJP ADVANTAGE in my children and boarders who shared our space while attending PREP. Always preach the Good News with confidence."
