Summer Enrichment Programs

Our vibrant summertime program highlights:

  • Be completely immersed in one subject.
  • Concentrate on a favorite area of study.
  • Acquire new skills.
  • Take Advanced Placement classes in following years.
  • Pursue a class that is not offered during the year. Typically, classes are the equivalent of a full one-year course at Seton Hall Prep, though occasionally there are mini-courses offered as well.
  • Because classes meet so intensively for a short duration, no more than two absences are permitted for any reason.

  • 2022 Summer Enrichment Course Offerings

    Seton Hall Prep Summer Enrichment provides an opportunity for students to advance their progress in math, science, or language, or to broaden or deepen their academic interests through unique electives. Summer Enrichment affords a single focus for students and the relative calm provided by taking one course at a time. The current list of offerings is below.

    All math students must be recommended for honors placement. 
    Courses are scheduled in late May, based on registrations received.  Some courses may not be scheduled if sufficient registrations are not reached.


    LANGUAGE

    Spanish II Honors – Mrs. Umaña
     This accelerated class develops students’ competence in the basic skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing and gives them the confidence to express themselves on more advanced topics. The emphasis is on communication, especially concerning understanding of cultural perspectives in communities where Spanish is spoken. Through authentic resources including literature, art, music and film, students acquire knowledge of current social and political issues in the Hispanic world. Completing this course enables the student to enroll in Spanish III Honors in the Fall.
     
    MATH

    Precalculus Honors Mr. D. Kahney
    This course will cover all the material that is covered in the Precalculus Honors class that is offered during the year. A student must be current in Honors math and recommended to continue in order to enroll. It will also include a video component that will look at the history and impact of mathematics and technology. The class structure will allow immediate follow up work that will take the place of most homework. This should keep homework to a minimum. Taking this class sets up the current junior for Calculus AP. Taking this class sets up the current sophomore for Calculus AP junior year and Statistics AP senior year. Students with a grade of A or A+ AND perfect attendance may be exempted from the Final Exam at teacher discretion.

    Geometry Honors:    Mr. Kane
    This is a course in Euclidean Geometry including plane and solid Geometry. A student must be current in Honors math and recommended to continue in order to enroll. The students will be exposed to two-column proofs and there will be some applications related to physics. The main objectives of the course are: 1) to teach students basic geometric facts, which will be needed for future math courses and the SAT’s. 2) To be able to solve problems in Geometry. 3) To be able to solve Algebra problems in a Geometry context. 4) To be able to follow a deductive presentation. 5) To realize some of the “real world” applications of Geometry. 6) To be able to construct a proof. 7) To be able to execute right triangle trigonometric problems. The course may also include a math/science related field trip. If time allows, we will even begin some Algebra II. Students with a grade of A or A+ AND perfect attendance may be exempted from the Final Exam at teacher discretion.

    Algebra II Honors    Mr. Carlucci
    The Algebra II Honors summer course will cover all the topics our full year Algebra II course masters. A student must be current in Honors math and recommended to continue in order to enroll. The advantage of taking this course in the summer is the student can interact with the material continuously and stay focused on one subject and time restraints present less of a problem so the class moves at an even pace. The structure of the class encourages class participation and allows for a fun learning environment. The reason to take Algebra II Honors in the summer is to keep options open such as Calculus AP and Statistics AP. These advanced math courses may earn the student college credit and are available to be taken senior year if all prerequisites are fulfilled. Students with a grade of A or A+ AND perfect attendance may be exempted from the Final Exam at teacher discretion.

    • Course offerings vary from year to year, depending upon student need, but not every course that a student might need will necessarily be offered.
    • Typically, the following courses are offered: English, History, Physical Science, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II. Sometimes Theology is offered.
    • Classes run for a total of 19 days, and student may enroll in no more than two courses. The final times for all class meetings (8:00-10:30 pr 11:00-1:30) will be published the day after registration, and will be available online.

  • Pirates Academy for Current 7th Graders

    While providing a wealth of educational opportunities, The Pirates Academy will introduce students to many of our other activities in an enjoyable, rewarding environment. Whether developing a product on our 3D printers, preparing for the Math and English portions of our entrance exam, developing a lab in our state-of-the-art science wing, or working with one of our renowned Varsity coaches, our Pirates Academy students will experience tremendous learning.

    The five-day program begins at 8:30 am and ends at 2:30 pm, with the exception of a one-day casual rafting trip down a small stretch of the Delaware River.
