Saint Peter's Preparatory School (Prep) was originally one of three Departments (Collegiate, Preparatory, and Grammar) established within Saint Peter's College, which was chartered as a university by a special Act of the Legislature of New Jersey on April 3, 1872. The Jesuit College of New Jersey, Saint Peter's was founded as a liberal arts college for men. In the beginning, the school combined the preparatory school and the college: "Students generally entering the first year of prep school… [proceeded] through seven years, later eight, until a degree was granted" (Roehrenbeck 2).

The school opened on September 2, 1878, at the Saint Peter's College building on Grand Street with seventy-one students originally enrolled in the Preparatory Department. That number grew to 123 by year's end. Academic degrees were first conferred on June 25, 1889.
