Be the Magis (the more), a fundamental Jesuit principle is the foundation of everything we do at Seattle Prep.
We strive to be more so we can do more. What more can we do for God, in service to others. What more is needed from us (intellectually, spiritually, emotionally) to make the world better?
Each year 785 students continue the Jesuit legacy in the Seattle area, joining over 10,000 alumni who are making a difference as aerospace engineers, best-selling authors, naval pilots, Broadway actors, restraunteers, charter school founders, state supreme court justice fellows, professional athletes, film directors, professors, governors, musicians and yes, parents.
We embrace the Ignatian ideals that God may be found in all things, that each person is sacred and that we are created to serve others in community.
No One Says it Better Than Our Alums

An unorthodox, inventive musical, Hamilton turns history on its head and in doing so propels itself into the anals of legendary broadway shows. But if Hamilton is the headliner, Marc delaCruyz ’97 is the subtext, proving things aren't always what they seem.
Five miles west of the Nile River the red-hued desert gives way to the Great Pyramids of Giza—the lone ancient wonder still in existence. And, where Paul Mullaly ’71 unknowingly began his 40-year journey to the Vatican.
Sometimes your life only makes sense when you look at it in the rear-view mirror. Jen Davis Wickens ’96, the CEO of Impact Schools, now sees her life mission clearly, as she leads the effort of creating a successful network of public charter schools in Washington State.
