Seton Hall Prep has, since its foundation in 1856, provided young men with a rigorous four-year college preparatory curriculum. Grounded in traditional core disciplines, the curriculum challenges students with offerings at three different academic levels. All students must complete:
- four years of Theology, English, and Mathematics
- three years of History
- two years of Foreign Language and Lab Science
Beyond the core curriculum, students undertake development of their personal goals with a diverse set of academic electives. The Prep features a strong program of Fine and Performing Arts, complemented by a set of co-curricular activities and public performance opportunities. Students are encouraged to enroll in courses for which they may receive college credit as early as freshman year in one of our more than 20 Advanced Placement courses.
A strength of The Prep experience continues to be the strong personal relationships forged between students and teachers—the educational experience here goes well beyond the walls and time frame of the class. And while it is recognized that academic talent is not always bestowed in equal measure, high expectations and standards are in place for all students, not just the most blessed.
