Holy Ghost Prep is a unique institution.
Founded in 1897 as Holy Ghost Apostolic College, a six-year seminary for the education of the Holy Ghost Fathers and Brothers, our school (HGP or "Ghost" to its students and neighbors) recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of its designation as Holy Ghost Preparatory School.
Located adjacent to the busy I-95 corridor in metropolitan Philadelphia, Holy Ghost Prep attracts students from more than 100 elementary feeder schools from throughout metropolitan Philadelphia counties and New Jersey.
HGP today is a vibrant community of nearly 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.
