Big day coming up at the Prep on Wednesday, September 9, when students – including our inaugural Middle School students – begin school! Brother Benjamin Hall is now home for grades 6, 7 and 8, and the new High School Academic Building is open and ready for the new year. The Prep campus has undergone exciting improvements, and we hope you will come check it all out at Homecoming on October 3!

Brother Linus - Monday, October 5

The Alumni Office has several opportunities to help alumni mentor Prep students. In coordination with the St. Francis Xavier (SFX) Merit Scholarship program, a student mentoring breakfast takes place in the fall. Alumni participate in roundtable discussions about their career paths with Prep students.
During the spring, alumni invite juniors and seniors from the SFX program to shadow them for a half day out in the field. Alumni are also invited to speak to the student Spire Society leadership group on Tuesday evenings throughout the school year.
If interested in volunteering as an alumni mentor for any of these programs, please fill out this short form or email Kristen Bowes, firstname.lastname@example.org.
