Don Bosco Prep is not just a high school, but an "educational experience" that challenges the minds of young men to meet and to excel beyond the required standards of institutions of higher education. The curriculum at Don Bosco Prep anticipates that the student will pursue higher education upon graduation. As such, the program of studies provides the students with instruction in the liberal arts and sciences. It is the function of these courses to assist in imparting to the students the skills and information necessary for them to become informed, literate and contributing members of society. Inherent to each course is the purpose of developing the powers of comprehension, synthesis, critical thinking and analytical techniques, which foster coherence and fluidity of expression, both oral and written. In addition, the students are given guidance in conducting research, i.e. gathering data for the purpose of its organization, presentation and interpretation.
