Prep U


St. Joseph's Prep is well known for its high-level academics and for drawing top-tier, motivated students from across the Delaware Valley. This summer, boys and girls finishing 6th and 7th grades have the opportunity to experience the St. Joseph's, learn from inspiring Prep faculty, and meet new friends from all different areas and backgrounds by attending the popular Prep U Summer Program at St. Joseph's Preparatory School in Philadelphia.

In addition to enrichment offerings in math, reading and science, the program includes subjects such as robotics, improv, leadership, study skills and more. That's in addition to daily athletic and extracurricular offerings, plus daily guest speakers from among the Prep's rich network of faculty, staff, students and alumni. For example, last year, Prep U students met CBS3's Matt Peterson (a Prep grad), who brought the newscast's Weather Van to the school, and one day pro basketball player Steve Vasturia--a Prep basketball great who went to Notre Dame and is now playing in Germany--popped in to talk with the kids.

Additional benefits of the Prep U program include:
Meet friends from across the Delaware Valley
Afternoon sport camps run by acclaimed Prep coaches and athletic staff
Busing available from all areas throughout the region

"One other great thing about Prep U is that it gives us a chance to get to know some of the young men before they apply next year," Brown says. "It is very helpful to know these students before the application process begins."

The 2017 Prep U Program will run July 9-27, 2018. For more information, go to
