Independence Day-Argonauts Unite

This campaign ended on October 23, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Rutgers Preparatory School by clicking here!
Celebrate with fellow Argonauts and support your Rutgers Prep.

Today’s the day.  24 hours and 375 donors supporting every aspect of the student experience and paying tribute to the parents and alumni who united to launch our independence more than six decades ago.

Join us as we celebrate the day we resolved our last ties with the university and began our journey as an independent Rutgers Prep.

Make your annual fund gift. Honor a special faculty or staff member. Challenge your friends. Share it on social media.
