Seattle Preparatory School, popularly known as Seattle Prep, is a private, Jesuit high school located on Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington.HistorySeattle Prep has a long history of educational excellence in the Jesuit tradition. In 1891, 137 boys formed the first class at Immaculate Conception School (the name changed to Seattle College in 1898). Each school day began with Mass, and the young men were expected to master a traditional Jesuit curriculum patterned after the Ratio Studiorum (established by the Society of Jesus in 1599): Latin, Greek, math, literature, science and religion. In order to provide access to Jesuit education, in 1899 Seattle College charged a modest $15 per year in tuition, although costs far exceeded the charge.In 1919, T.C. McHugh purchased Adelphia College, a Swedish Baptist seminary and school, and donated the property to Seattle College. In fall of that year 143 students began classes at the new Interlaken campus, and our school has been located on this property ever since that time.In 1933, the high school officially changed its name to Seattle Preparatory and in 1948 Seattle College became Seattle University (the two had split into high school and college in 1931). In the ensuing decades, the Seattle Prep community continued to meet every challenge and seize many opportunities including numerous building projects: 1950s Fr. Christopher McDonnell, SJ Hall 1960s Peyton Hall (former Jesuit residence) 1980s McHugh Gymnasium 1990s Ignatius Hall, the redesigned Parking Garage and Plaza 2000s Lee Family Arts Center, PACCAR Commons and The Fr.
