Santa Fe Preparatory School (Santa Fe Prep) is a private preparatory day school located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Santa Fe Prep is accredited by the Independent School Association of the Southwest, and is also a member of the National Association of Independent Schools.

History[edit]

The school was founded in February 1961. The school opened its doors 1963 at a campus on Canyon Road, with sixty-three students in seventh through ninth grades.

Campus[edit]

In the early 1970s, Santa Fe Prep moved to its current site, a 13-acre (53,000 m2) campus near the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, adjacent to the Santa Fe campus of St. John's College. In 2001 Prep built a new School Commons. In 2006 the school completed a LEED Gold-certified library building that houses approximately 11,000 volumes.[1]

The campus is also the location of the Meem Art Building, which was originally the home of architect John Gaw Meem.
