Following a decisive victory in last week's opener, Prep's nationally-ranked football team (MaxPreps #16, USA Today, #12 and Star-Ledger New Jersey #1) heads home to Caven Point, hosting Bergen Catholic in a "Tribute to America" game, which will be shown live on ESPNU. Game time is 7 p.m., but if you're headed to Cochrane Field, we'll have an alumni tailgate ready to greet you, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Please read on for important ticket information!
The Class of 2018 began their Prep journey in earnest on Thursday, as they spent the day learning the ropes at freshman orientation. The 270 freshmen make up the largest incoming class in recent memory, and bring with them the experiences and perspectives of diverse neighborhoods and grammar schools throughout New Jersey and New York. Together, they will write the next chapter in the Prep saga.
Before the members of the Class of 2018 descend upon Grand & Warren for freshman orientation, five new faces spent the first three days of this week experiencing an orientation program of their own. Please join us in welcoming the new members of Prep's faculty!
With the new school year set to begin, students are no doubt amassing the usual complement of equipment for the journey ahead. But as Prep embarks on its first 1:1 technology initiative, the list includes a new item: a standard-issue Acer Chromebook, designed to integrate seamlessly with the Google Apps infrastructure Prep's students and teachers have been using since 2012.
