Welcome and thank you for visiting Mater Dei Prep.
We are an independent, Catholic college preparatory high school located in the heart of Monmouth County in Middletown, New Jersey. Our school provides students a comprehensive experience in academics, religion, community service, athletics, the arts, clubs, and more. We pride ourselves on the depth and breadth of unique experiences we are able to offer our students to help them build a strong foundation as they move to the next stage in their lives.
Mater Dei Prep encompasses four pillars which guide our students to the complete High School experience:
- Faith: We build on our Catholic foundation to further instill confidence in our students, enhancing their self-esteem and ultimately bringing them closer to their faith. This has lasting affects with our students facing life straight on.
- Knowledge: We teach our students how to attain knowledge, and how to use it both in the present and the future, to keep learning and improving who they are and who they will become.
- Service: We guide our students to understand the rewards of giving back through all types of service structures. There is no better way for a young adult to build character than giving back to those in need.
- Community: Our community is 50 years strong and is made up of over 6,000 alumni, students, parents, staff, faculty, and friends of the institution. Standing together, we create a deep network of Seraphs who enjoy coming back and engaging their fellow members of the Mater Dei Prep community.
Mater Dei Prep is a school where individuality prevails. It is a safe environment where Seraphs will learn and challenge themselves and each other. We are a smaller private school, yet we are big enough to compete at the highest levels on the athletic fields and on stage. Our students attend and are successful at some of the finest universities in the country.
Our doors are open to all, so stop by to say hello, ask some questions, give your opinions, or just take in the many smiles you will see in our hallways every day.
May God bless you and yours,
Mater Dei Prep
