  • 2:54 Iona Prep Begins Its Yearlong Centennial Celebration

    Alumni and benefactors, parents and volunteers, staff and students, Gaels one and all—the 2016 President's Dinner was a night literally 100 years in the making!

    From the Stearn Estate on Webster Avenue that the Christian Brothers were renting when the Iona School welcomed its very first class on Oct. 16, 1916, to the majestic 37 acres of our Lower and Upper School campuses today, we’ve come a long way—even though we never left New Rochelle!

    Much has obviously changed over the years as Iona Prep has evolved. We began this journey as one school when we first opened with 37 students and three teachers in grades 1-9. Along the way, we gave birth to Iona College in 1940—though that is a story in itself—separated into a Grammar and high school, and reunited in 2013 to serve, once again, as a PK-12 learning community.

    We’ve graduated from traditional “chalk and talk” scenarios to classrooms outfitted with collaborative learning furniture and 135-inch Promethean interactive whiteboards; these allow for students to work together at solving problems or diagramming sentences. Pen and paper has been replaced by laptops, tablets and—dare I say it—smartphones on our secure, 1:1, device-to-student network. And don’t forget that we were one of the first secondary schools in the country to offer a completely wireless campus. Our classrooms as are as diverse today as our cross-curricular instruction.

    What hasn’t changed is our commitment to educating the whole man—intellectually, physically, socially and spiritually—in the tradition of Blessed Edmund Rice. Our alumni are the the current generation of leaders. They set the example in boardrooms and town halls, as husbands and fathers, as parishioners and volunteers, and as brothers to their fellow Gaels. The next generation of leaders is in our hallowed halls, and our $10 million Centennial Campaign for Excellence will provide the necessary resources so that Iona men may continue the collective call to lead and to serve, to “stand in solidarity with those marginalized by poverty and injustice.”

    Iona Prep is poised to become the standard for Catholic education in the Northeast!

  • 00:33 A Graduating Senior Thanks You for Opportunities Provided

    Domenick Laperuta US'16 is a quintessential Iona man. He was editor of the school yearbook, a Campus Minister, part of our Leadership Program and an active member of our Student-Faculty Council. An Iona Preparatory education provides Gaels with ample opportunities to lead, and Domenick took advantage of a number of them. He also knows the value of hard work and deadlines, having labored since last summer to produce this year's Iona Prep SAGA.
