West Catholic Prep is a part of the global network of Christian Brother ministries. We are specficially a part of the District of Eastern North America (DENA) is a community of over 240 Brothers of the Christian Schools and 5,000+ Lasallian partners and associates, who together sponsor and operate more than 30 ministries. The Christian Brothers arrived at West Philadelphia Catholic Boys High School in 1927. They are the spiritual descendents of St. John Baptist de la Salle, the patron Saint of teachers. They were administrators and teachers at West Catholic Boys and continued to lead and teach at West Catholic when the boys and girls schools' combined in 1989. We still have Christian Brothers on our staff at West Catholic Prep today.
