Why Devon Prep?


Devon Prep’s holistic approach to teaching ensures that students are educated for life – academically, socially, athletically, and spiritually.  Our focus on small class sizes, individual attention, and a complete experience inside and outside the classroom set us apart from other schools.

Our 2018-19 curriculum contains more than 20 AP course offerings, numerous electives, and is updated yearly to ensure our students have access to coursework that will allow them to tackle college and life beyond our halls.  Students aren’t tracked; they build schedules with the assistance of their teachers, advisers, parents, and guidance department to make sure they’re tailoring it appropriately for themselves.  And we have the best teachers – and a 6:1 student to teacher ratio – instructing your son along the way.

We’ve expanded our Art Department, with offerings including Advanced Ceramics and 3D Digital Printing.  We’ve upgraded the technological offerings with classes like Game Design I & II, Robotics, and Graphic Design I and II.  Students can follow their passions – or find new ones – with electives like Sports Physiology, Intro to Legal Studies, Cold War Seminar, or Film Production.

We are a school focused on the individual, and our curriculum allows your son a limitless opportunity.

Education for life.  It means you’re prepared to take on what’s next.  With $11.6 million in scholarship funding and more than 260 acceptances to 102 different colleges and universities, our class of 2018 certainly is.

The college selection process is, like everything else at Devon, an individual one.  It starts in 9th and 10th grades – developing relationships, favorite courses, and your learning style.  And expands in 11th and 12th grades as you sit in on college visits, determine ideal school location and size, and work with the College Guidance department to find the right fit.  You get personal attention and assistance to position yourself – academically and financially – for success.

With small class sizes, individual attention, endless class choices, top-notch athletics, and countless activities and clubs, it’s easy to see why in 2017 and 2018 we were ranked the BEST Catholic High School in Pennsylvania by www.Niche.com.  Come spend a visit day and see for yourself!
