Austin Prep Igniting Hearts, Transforming Lives


Dear Friends,

Austin Prep has been on a Journey for nearly 60 years, inspiring a passion for life and learning in our students. We are a community that models academic excellence and servant-leadership. Austin Prep celebrated its first graduated class in 1966. While I’m proud of all Austin Prep has accomplished since that time, at our core we remain a school committed to exemplary teaching and learning. Today, we are at full enrollment, including students from over fifty Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire communities and abroad.

The future of Austin Prep is bright, thanks in large part to the generosity and leadership of our parents, grandparents, alumni, and students. Over the past 20 years, Austin Prep’s development activity has matured, with each of three previous campaigns building on the success of its predecessors. Those efforts helped produce Meelia Hall and the David E. Nelson ‘81 Fitness Center, modernized the monastery for the arts and technology programs, created a stadium aligned with Austin Prep’s athletic talent, and constructed a dining facility that would make St. Augustine proud.

While our achievements are significant, our work is not done. These recent upgrades set a strong precedent for future growth. With your help, we can take a more decisive step toward achieving our goals. We are honored you are taking the time to consider your role in the next phase of development for Austin Prep. Together, we can better meet our mission by ensuring academic excellence, affordability, and sustainability for many future generations. Join us.
