“Estote Firmi.” In Latin, it means “Be Strong.”

Boiled down to its essence, that is the educational philosophy of Iona Preparatory of New Rochelle, N.Y., Westchester’s premier all-boys, PK-12 private school. For more than 100 years, we have been rooted in the strength of our Catholic tradition, developing young men into dedicated leaders who strive for spiritual, intellectual, and physical excellence.

Our exceptional academics and college preparatory program empower students to become leaders in the workplace, in their communities and in the world. For students seeking to develop academic abilities, deepen faith, cultivate character, and make lifelong connections, we invite them to discover the Iona Prep difference.

To “Be Strong,” they must first be Iona Prepared…That preparation begins at our Lower School, where a well-rounded program promotes the harmonious growth of the whole person, fosters higher-order thinking, and prepares students for lifelong learning as early as age 4. Their IONA PREParation continues at our Upper School, which is home to a Superior Talent Enrichment Program that has been expanded to include science, as well as the humanities; a rigorous three-year Science Research Program; and is now the fifth Westchester secondary school to offer the AP Capstone Diploma, along with 17 AP courses.

Our emphasis is on strength across all disciplines, and our graduates have earned over a quarter billion in academic scholarships over the last decade.  Iona Prep is education for higher expectations.  Discover the Iona Prep difference for yourself at one of three fall Open Houses:
