SOUTH ORANGE, NJ –  A group of students from the Paterson’s School of Education and Training (SET Academy) got a taste of college life recently by spending a day at Seton Hall University touring the campus, meeting faculty and administration, and learning about the programs at the school’s College of Education and Human Services.   

Saying the day helped students transform the idea of going to college from an abstract one to one that is more concrete, Superintendent Eileen Shafer added that now that they have been on a college campus the students can “visualize the opportunities they are working toward when they come back to our classrooms.”

Focusing on preparing students for careers in education SET Academy is one of Paterson Public School’s 12 “choice” high schools, with many of those that attend aspiring to become teachers.
