Holy Ghost Preparatory School - Bensalem, Pennsylvania
With Christ at the center, Holy Ghost Preparatory School aspires to form young men morally, intellectually, and spiritually in the Spiritan tradition. This tradition fosters the development of community in "one heart and one mind," the cultivation of each student's unique gifts, academic excellence, and generous service to the poor.
Holy Ghost Preparatory School serves God by serving each student through a commitment to excellence in liberal arts and sciences education and through a deep concern for moral, spiritual, and ethical values, grounded in the traditions of Roman Catholicism and the Congregation of the Holy Spirit.
The motto of Holy Ghost Preparatory School is Cor Unum et Anima Una, which means, "One Heart and One Mind." This is the cornerstone of the institution. This tradition calls for a particular concern for the poor and oppressed. Thus, One Heart and One Mind leads to the total educational experience: diversity in thought, openness to new possibilities, impetus for change, and service to the poor in the spirit of the Gospel.
