Freshman for a Day

Eighth graders can participate in Prep's "Freshman for a Day" program. The program allows students to spend a full day at the school, attending classes and eating lunch, escorted by a current Prep freshman ambassador.  The Freshman for a Day program runs from September 22, 2014 until the Friday before Registration Day.  Reservations will be accepted starting on Monday, September 8, 2014.

Private tours of the campus, conducted on a regular day of classes during the academic year, are also available. Please allow at least one week's notice for a private tour.

To make an appointment for Freshman for a Day or for a private tour, please contact Mrs. Diane Casazza in the Admissions Department at (201) 547-6465.

 

Our student ambassadors love showing prospective students around Prep.  Here's what they are saying:

 "Being a Freshman Ambassador is a fun way to help Prep.  I am proud of Prep and am very excited to share my experiences here with eighth graders."

Bennett Wong, '15

 "Freshman for a Day is important because if you leave the right impression about Prep with an eighth grader, it could change a student's life forever.  Freshman for a Day is a great way to get an eighth grader involved in our school even before he is a student here."

Christopher Maloney, '16

"This program gives a visual of what a freshman would go through during his school day. When I went for Freshman For a Day my experience really made my decision clear to come to Saint Peters Prep."

James Niland, '16

 

And comments from the Class of '17:

"My Freshman for a Day experience was exceptional. Prior to FFAD I was undecided. After FFAD I wanted nothing more than to attend Prep. My freshman, Billy Fitzpatrick, was very nice and helpful. He answered all of my questions and made me feel welcome. I don't think anything in particular stood out for me. I loved every part of my day. The teachers all seemed excellent and the information they were teaching was very intriguing. Overall, I loved the atmosphere as well as everything else. I would recommend Freshman for a Day to anyone who is considering going to Saint Peter's Prep."

Alex DeMartino, Nultey, Class of 2017

 

"Freshman for a Day was when my desire to attend Prep was sparked. I was finally part of the comraderie that I had heard so much about. The entire St. Peters Prep atmosphere gave me a wonderful sense of arrival."

--Hans Schundler, Class of 2017
