The Seton Hall Prep Application Process:

In order to be considered for admission to Seton Hall Prep for the 9th grade, an applicant must fulfill the following requirements:

  1. Complete and return the Seton Hall Prep Application for Admission along with the $50 application fee.  This step includes registering for Seton Hall Prep's Entrance/Placement/Scholarship Exam on page two of The  Application For Admission Applications for the Class of 2019 will be available in early September.

  2. Sit for the Seton Hall Prep Entrance/Placement/Scholarship Exam on any of the available dates: November 15th, December 13th, December 20th, and January 3rd.  A late test date will be offered on Saturday, February 28th for students who could not make any of the first four exam dates.  This date can be written in on page 2 of The Application for Admission.

  3. Submit final transcripts for the 6th and 7th grade, and for the first marking period of the 8th grade. In order to do this, complete the Transcript Release Form and return it to the applicant's current school so that they can forward his records to Seton Hall Prep.  Parents are encouraged to submit a signed Transcript Release Form to their son's current school around the same time as the 1st marking period of the 8th grade is ending so that his school sends only one packet of grades for 6th, 7th and the 1st marking period of the 8th grade.

    Admission to 9th grade is based on an applicant’s performance on The Seton Hall Prep Entrance/Scholarship/Placement Exam AND on his 6th, 7th, and 8th grade records.  The SHP Admission Office will begin accepting Applications for Admission for those entering the 9th grade in the fall of 2015, on October 1, 2014. 

    The Prep's Admission Office welcomes letters of recommendation for applicants, but they are NOT a required element of the SHP application process.

    Decisions for the Class of 2019 will be mailed on January 15, 2015.
