Current eighth graders can spend a school day shadowing a current Prep freshman. It’s a great way to experience what it’s like to be a Marauder!

Our student ambassadors love showing prospective students around Prep. Here’s what some of our ambassadors have said:
I would never have met so many talented and intelligent individuals from NJ and NY without my role as an Ambassador.Thomas Fecowycz, ‘26
My experience as a Freshman Ambassador was something I loved doing here at Prep, as it allowed me to get to know incoming Freshmen and to show them Prep’s great community.Theodore Kim, ‘26
Being a freshman ambassador not only gave me the opportunity to share the Saint Peter’s Prep experience with an eighth grader, it also helped me recognize how fortunate I am to be a Prep student.Connor Bankuti, ’22
“This program gives a visual of what a freshman would go through during his school day. When I went for Freshman For a Day my experience really made my decision clear to come to Saint Peter’s Prep.”James Niland, ’16
And some insights from FFaD guests…
Although I already knew about Prep’s reputation for academics, sports, and service from my dad and brother, I got to experience a taste of Prep myself while a Freshman for a Day. I didn’t need to look at any other high school, because I knew that I wanted to become a man for others at Prep.Eli Jablonski, ’23
My Freshman for a Day experience was exceptional. Prior to FFaD I was undecided. After FFaD I wanted nothing more than to attend Prep. My freshman, Billy Fitzpatrick, was very nice and helpful. He answered all of my questions and made me feel welcome. I don’t think anything in particular stood out for me. I loved every part of my day. The teachers all seemed excellent and the information they were teaching was very intriguing. Overall, I loved the atmosphere as well as everything else. I would recommend Freshman for a Day to anyone who is considering going to Saint Peter’s Prep.Alex DeMartino, ’17
Freshman for a Day was one of the most informative things for me as I made my high school decision. The experience showed me how great Prep is, how the brotherhood is real, and it convinced me to attend Prep.Alex Puhak, ’22
