Welcome to Seton Hall Preparatory School! Proud of our school’s tradition and honored to share it with you, we are pleased that you have chosen to visit Seton Hall Prep’s website.
We have a rich history, beginning in 1856, and we are the oldest Catholic college preparatory school in New Jersey.
Seton Hall educates young men in grades nine through twelve. The Prep is administered by priests of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark and our primary goal is the development of the whole man in the values of the Catholic faith; spiritually, intellectually, socially and physically.
The Seton Hall Prep Community comprises a faculty of 95 men and women and a student body of approximately 975 young men from 130 localities. The Prep welcomes young men of every race, color, religious belief, national and ethnic origin who desire to be contributing members of the school family and to grow along with it. Binding this community together is the extraordinary support we enjoy from our parents, trustees, alumni and friends.
The strength of the Seton Hall Prep Community lies in the people that make it up. Our students are energetic, enthusiastic, talented, creative and concerned. Our teachers are dedicated professionals who enjoy their vocation and care for their students. This relationship between our teachers and students fosters high standards and drives each student to account for his actions. In this way, students are readied for the realities of life and the challenges that they will most certainly have to face in the future.
We propose, as an ideal, men who can realize our motto, “Hazard Zet Forward,” by boldly witnessing their faith, their hope and their love.
We invite you to visit us—on the web or in person—and to enjoy the Prep experience.
Msgr. Michael E. Kelly ’57
