Mother Seton Regional High School will offer an expanded college preparatory program for newly admitted freshmen in September.
Success Through Academic Readiness (STAR), will offer selected ninth graders and some current students, an opportunity to pursue a challenging academic program with the added benefit of increased classroom support and individualized instruction.
“We recognize that students learn in a variety of ways,” says Corinne Wnek, the director of Guidance at the high school. “We also understand that students are at different points of readiness for their transition to high school. Teachers within the S.T.A.R program are trained to work with students academically, socially and emotionally, so that the students have a positive freshman experience.”
Sr. Jacquelyn Balasia, principal of Mother Seton, agrees.
“We want all students to be successful here at Mother Seton right from the start,” said Balasia. “The new S.T.A.R program is designed to help students strengthen academic skills in the ninth grade so that they will be ready to pursue their high school career at Mother Seton confidently and successfully.”
For more information on the S.T.A.R program, please call the Guidance department at Mother Seton Regional at 732-382-1952.
The program is said to offer families a greater return on their investment in private education by providing access to transcripted college credit courses, opening new scholarship opportunities for students, and an offering of college readiness courses and exploratory experiences starting in middle school and continuing until graduation.
