College Advantage Program

The Mater Dei Prep College Advantage Program gives students the opportunity to earn college credit through the Seton Hall University Project Acceleration and Brookdale Community College Dual Enrollment program.  The Mater Dei Prep faculty, who are also adjunct professors, teach the college–level courses on campus.  This allows students  to earn college credit while completing their high school requirements.
