The CYO Prep Invitational, also referred to as the high school portion of the National Invitational, was an indoor track meet started in 1968 and hosted through the early 1980's. The full slate of high school events was referred to as the CYO Invitational and was contested at the same venue before or after the elite National Invitational.

According to a Washington Post article, the meet was started by Robert F. (Bob) Comstock in 1968 and the high school division of the meet was directed by Joe Deady, a track coach at St. Johns High School.

The meet was held in the DC Armory for two years before it moved to Cole Field House at the University of Maryland. Cole Field House had a capacity of 12,000 at the time - double the DC Armory capacity. A new track and jumping pits were installed for the 1970 event at Cole Field House. Comstock boasted the new 11-lap-to-the-mile track was the fastest indoor oval in the country.

The CYO Invitational rivaled the Naval Academy Invitational as the most elite indoor high school meet in the area for many years.
