If you have had the opportunity to spend a virtual “Freshman for a Day” with us, met The Prep at your school or parish, or spent even just a few moments leafing through our viewbook or website, inevitably, you have come across three simple words which serve as the foundation for how we at Seton Hall Prep approach the world: Hazard Zet Forward. Stretching back over 700 years to the Seton family in Scotland, Hazard Zet Forward – whatever the challenge, keep moving forward! – serves as a guide for how we as members of the Seton Hall Prep family approach any challenge or difficulty we may encounter in our daily lives. Never more so than today do such words ring true.
Yesterday, we learned that three members of our immediate community had tested positive for the COVID-19 virus over the course of the past fourteen days. In compliance with the New Jersey Department of Health, we have decided to pivot to a fully remote learning environment for the next two weeks. In order to keep our current students and families, as well as you, our future Pirates, safe, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our fall Open House, scheduled for Sunday, November 1.
Over the coming days, as our Administration meets to discuss our re-opening plan, I promise to keep in touch with you regarding our plans for a possible rescheduled Open House event. In the meantime, we will still be holding our virtual Freshman for a Day sessions each afternoon at 4:00 pm. We would love to welcome you (virtually!) to our Admission Office and share with you just a few of the many things that make Seton Hall Prep such a truly wonderful place to call home!
I thank you for your kind thoughts and wishes and I look forward to welcoming you – personally – back to campus just as soon as we are able.
Continued best wishes and Hazard Zet Forward,
Michael T. Zinsmeister
Director of Admission
