Seton Hall Prep is a private boys high school (grades 9-12) of the Archdiocese of Newark.
Founded in 1856, Seton Hall is the oldest Catholic college preparatory school in New Jersey.
The Prep provides an academically demanding environment to approximately 900 young men from a diverse spectrum of over 120 towns in the northern part of New Jersey.
SHP takes as its mission the development of the whole man—spiritual, intellectual, social and physical.
The Prep community proceeds from a belief that growth as a whole person is not limited to secular knowledge but involves the spiritual fulfillment that has been a central concern in its educational tradition.
In as much as such growth and maturity are rooted in personal and social responsibility, a code of conduct and expectations is in place to guide the student community in their daily activities.
Consequent to its Catholic identity, SHP seeks to foster an ecumenical and diverse community, faithful to a Judeo-Christian heritage.
