Together We Are Ironmen

Don Bosco Preparatory High School is a Catholic and Salesian secondary school which, since 1915, has carried out the education and evangelization of young men. 
Conducted in the charism of St. John Bosco, who advocated that “education is a matter of the heart”, it strives to create a family spirit in an Oratory environment, so as to be a home that welcomes, a parish that evangelizes, a school that prepares for life, and a playground where friends can meet and enjoy themselves.

Don Bosco Prep's Commencement has been rescheduled for Saturday, July 31, 2020.

It is contingent upon federal and state guidelines regarding social distancing, mass gatherings, and public safety.


From the Young Men of Don Bosco Prep, we say THANK YOU!

Thank you for your support of our boys through the Bosco CARES Fund, which is off to a great start.

Thank you for helping us continue to deliver our mission by supporting student financial aid as well as academic and extracurricular needs for our boys, but we still need your help!

The Bosco CARES Fund is still open and will be for some time and we are still taking donations. We have taken a huge leap as we are more than halfway to our goal. We had an amazing day Tuesday, and so far have raised $600,000 toward our $1m goal!

Even though our Bosco CARES Fund keeps growing, we are not done yet. You are the key to our success and the key to investing in our young men. Our Bosco students' needs continue to grow, and now more than ever they need your assistance to remain Ironmen for life!

"My children: jump, run and play and make all the noise you want
but avoid sin like the plague and you will surely gain Heaven."

"In every young person, a point of goodness is accessible
and it is the primary duty of the educator
to discover that sensitive cord of the heart
so as to draw out the best in the young person."

"Do you want to do a good deed? Teach the young!
Do you want to perform a holy act?  Teach the young!
Do you want to do a holy thing? Teach the young!
Truly, now and for the future, among holy things,
this is the holiest."

"Without confidence and love, there can be no true education."
