Holy Ghost Preparatory School:
Holy Ghost Preparatory School, located adjacent to the busy I-95 corridor in metropolitan Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is a private Catholic college prep school for young men offering grades 9 through 12. Holy Ghost Prep is a vibrant community of 500+ young men preparing for college and adult life through a challenging program which stresses the cultivation of students' unique gifts and talents, academic excellence, and generous service to the poor. We continue to be mindful of our founding history as a seminary as we seek to form young men morally, intellectually, and spiritually in the Spiritan tradition.
Grade 9 - 12:
Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) Courses:
As each course in our curriculum would be considered an honors course at many other schools and as many academically talented students attend Holy Ghost Prep, Honors or Advanced Placement courses are not for everyone. For incoming students, enrollment is limited to those students who have performed well on our placement test, our entrance test, on standardized tests administered at their elementary schools and who have achieved high standards of performance in their elementary school as evidenced by their elementary school transcript. For rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors, Honors and Advanced Placement courses are limited to those students who have demonstrated in their course work at Holy Ghost Prep a commitment to the highest level of achievement possible. Specific placement decisions are made by department members and their chairs, and are approved by the Placement Committee, in consultation with present subject teachers, department chairs, and members of the Academic Committee. Any student approved for admission into an AP course must take the corresponding AP exam offered in the spring.
The minimum requirement for graduation at Holy Ghost Preparatory School is 24 core course units. A unit is earned by completing assigned work satisfactorily. All students are required to take a minimum of six full core credit subjects each semester. All freshmen are required to take either Introduction to Studio Art or one of the other Fine Arts Department offerings to fulfill the ninth grade Fine Arts requirement. A senior who fails a course in his senior year may not graduate from Holy Ghost Prep. All students must fully participate in Christian Service, non-credit guidance courses, and the following to fulfill our academic requirements for graduation:
- Social Studies
- Foreign Language
- Core Electives
We at Holy Ghost Preparatory School feel that diversity in thought originates in the classroom. We reject the notion that the basic purpose of education is job training. We firmly believe in the value of the study of arts and sciences in the development of a thinking person whose beliefs and values are not subject to the whims of current opinion, but rather are based on a knowledge and critical evaluation of the past and its lessons for the present. We strive to develop a student who is capable of approaching an issue with an appreciation of its complexity and a rejection of the superficial, the simplistic or the merely expedient.
