Important Note for students taking a Diocesan CO-OP Exam:

An applicant is selected for admission based upon his academic record and his scores on the Seton Hall Prep Entrance/Placement/Scholarship Test. If a student takes the Catholic School CO-OP Exam for his Diocese in November, and wishes to apply to Seton Hall Prep, he still must sit for the Seton Hall Prep Entrance/Placement Scholarship Exam.  The Catholic School CO-OP Exam will not be used as a criterion for admission to Seton Hall Prep. Additionally, be aware that Seton Hall Prep is not listed on the CO-OP Exam as one of the three possible school choices that receives the student's academic records. Students interested in applying to Seton Hall Prep MUST use the Seton Hall Prep Transcript Release Form and have their eighth grade counselor fill it out and return it to Seton Hall Prep's Admission Office.
