Seton Hall Preparatory School

  • 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.
