  • Spend a day shadowing a Seton Hall Prep freshman!

    Due to Archdiocesan policy prohibiting visitors to the school during regularly-scheduled class hours, we have shifted our "Freshman for a Day" program to a virtual platform.  "Visits" will take place each afternoon at 4:00 pm via Zoom and will allow visitors to meet the Director of Admission, ask questions, and learn even more about what makes Seton Hall Prep such a wonderful place to call home!  In addition to the live meeting, a series of videos (covering such topics as academics, athletics, campus ministry, retreats, student activities, extracurriculars, transportation, and student life) will be available for your perusal after your visit.  Upon completion of your Freshman for a Day experience, you will receive your official Seton Hall Prep "Freshman for a Day" shirt and SHP mask to wear proudly! 
    To book YOUR Freshman for a Day appointment, begin on the right side of this page by selecting "Book Now". Once you have made this selection, you will be able to choose a specific date in our online calendar.
  • Take the Test

    After much discussion with the President, Headmaster, and members of the school administrative team, we have made the difficult decision to shift our entrance testing to an online format.  Please know that each and every decision we have made regarding visitors to our campus begins with and is driven by our concern for the safety and wellbeing of not only our current students and families, but for you, our future Pirates as well.
    The entrance/scholarship examination will be administered remotely on both Saturday, December 5 and again on Saturday, December 12 at 9:00 am.  Complete instructions will be emailed home to each tester on the Wednesday prior to testing.  The actual test link will be emailed to testers approximately one hour prior to the start of the test. 
  • Decisions

    Admission to the ninth grade is determined by an applicant’s performance on The Seton Hall Prep Entrance/Scholarship/Placement Exam and his 6th, 7th, and 8th grade records. Decisions will be mailed home to applicants on Thursday, January 14, 2021. Electronic notification of decisions will be made available online on Friday, January 15 at 3:00 pm in accordance with Archdiocesan policy.
