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.
Offered Classes for 2017: Spanish II H, Latin II H, Mandarin II H, Film Criticism, Algebra II H, Geometry H, Precalculus H, Physics H, iOS App Development.
Summer Enrichment last year at The Prep boasted one of the more robust sets of courses in quite some time. Approximately 10% of the school population elected to take one such course.
The summer offerings provide students with both the opportunity to “get ahead” in their studies, and also the chance to explore in a hands on situation.
Summer Independent Reading Project
To encourage reading and the pursuit of academic subjects during the summer, The Prep offers students an independent reading project that can earn them up to six honors credits. After chosing a topic from among the wide variety offered, the students are required to read the prescribed number of books (usually between four and six), keep a journal and log, as well as prepare a final paper about their reading experience by the beginning of school. Instructions and topics will be available for dowload at a later date.
Remedial Summer School
The Prep offers a number of courses for remediation during the summer. Summer School 2017 for those who have failed a class, or who are remediating a D to a C, begins June 19 and ends July 20. See the calendar on this site for details.
- Students who have failed a course may enroll and make up work that not completed satisfactorily during the school year.
- Students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 to maintain matriculation at Seton Hall Prep.
- Students who have earned a grade of D in a class may remediate and, if they maintain a at least a C average, convert their grade of D to C.
