History

In 1942, the Provincial of the New England Province of the Society of Jesus was invited by Bishop McAuliffe of Hartford to establish a Jesuit high school and college in Fairfield County. The Provincial, Father John McEleney, (later Archbishop) purchased 200 acres of land overlooking Long Island Sound in the town of Fairfield. The original Jennings mansion became McAuliffe Hall, the first classroom building, and the Lashar mansion became Bellarmine Hall, the first Jesuit residence.

By 1946, the school's enrollment was approaching 800 and two new buildings, Xavier and Berchmans, were on the drawing boards. 1947 also marked the establishment of Fairfield University.


Through the fifties, enrollment remained by design between 800 and 900 students. In the meantime, the University expanded rapidly and the original campus of two buildings and fifty students grew into the campus of today, with twenty-four buildings and over 3,000 students.


Today, Fairfield Prep has an enrollment of 896 students. It conducts classes in Xavier Hall, Berchmans Hall and Pedro Arrupe Hall. The growth of the University has opened up to Prep a host of new facilities: The Nyselius Library, the Recreation Complex with its indoor swimming pool, basketball, racquetball, and tennis courts, the Quick Center for the Arts, and the Egan Chapel of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
