Freshman for a Day

Spend a day shadowing a Seton Hall Prep freshman!

The Freshman for a Day Program is a great way for a prospective student to experience The Prep for the first time. This unique opportunity is available to 8th grade students between September 24th and February 1st and open to 7th grade students between March 4th and May 17th.

In order to provide as personal a visit as possible, we limit visitation to eight visitors per day.  If a student visits on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday, he should arrive in the Admission Office at 8:30am. If the student visits on a Thursday, he should arrive in the Admission Office at 9:15 am. Students can be picked up in the Admission office at the end of the school day at 2:45pm.

  • Each visitor will be given a lunch voucher to be used in The Seton Hall Prep Dining Hall.  Guests can also bring their lunch and bring additional money if they wish to add on to their voucher.  Freshmen for the Day should wear a dress shirt, tie and khaki-type pants with shoes (no sneakers).
  • Each visitor is also welcome to bring an 8th grade friend along who may also be interested in experiencing The Prep for a day.  The two can be paired and are able to spend the day together while visiting.  Both boys will need to make their own on-line appointments before visiting.
  • Each visitor may also request a particular current Prep freshman to be his host for the day when making an appointment. The host must be a freshman. If a visitor does not know a freshman whom he would like as his host, we will assign someone to him; possibly someone who shares a common interest or who is from the same hometown.
