The Annual Fund

Seton Hall Prep’s Annual Fund closes the 10% gap that is not covered by tuition and other revenue in the annual operating budget. The Annual Fund enhances the student experience as it directly supports academic and co-curricular programs including athletics, activities, technology, fine & performing arts, retreats, service opportunities and much more!
 
Gifts from our alumni and parents to the Annual Fund help The Prep to provide its talented and diverse students with everything they need to succeed. Our sudents are so grateful for the generosity of alumni and parents, that many follow the example and start making their own gifts after they graduate to pay it forward.
