Educational Philosophy

A school’s culture springs from the values of its students and staff. At St. Edmund Prep, that culture is one of bold learning. We offer a truly exceptional, life-changing education that will propel you into a life of meaning, purpose, and achievement.

Rooted in the spirit of our founders, the Dominican Sisters of Sparkill, and guided by the motto Caritas — our mission to serve the world with charity — our education is built around four pillars of student development:
  • Engaged, Active Learning
  • Cultivating Creativity and Innovation
  • Faith and Character Development
  • Compassionate, Servant Leadership
