Mater Dei Prep is pleased to announce the winners of the 2nd annual essay competition for the Future Seraph Scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship is for students planning to continue their education at Mater Dei Prep.

The competition was open to all seventh grade students (Mater Dei Prep class of 2022) in public and private schools in Monmouth, Ocean, and Middlesex counties. Students completed an online application and submitted a 350-500 word essay on one of three given topics relating to leadership, community service and extracurricular activities.

Kathleen Daly, Mater Dei Prep Director of Enrollment and Advancement shared her sentiments on the winners, “I am impressed and commend with the incredible work the Mater Dei Prep Future Seraph Essay winners have done in the community.  They wrote beautifully about their commitment to organizations such as: the SPCA, youth athletics, the Ronald McDonald House, vacation bible camp, food drives and gift drives.  I look forward to having these involved community minded individuals part of the Seraph family in the future.”

This $1,000 scholarship will be applied to each recipient’s first year tuition at Mater Dei Prep. All scholarship awards were presented by the Mater Dei Prep Administration to the student at their school’s academic awards ceremony.

The Future Seraph Essay Scholarship winners will soar at Mater Dei Prep due to the school’s individualized approach to education.  This approach is supported by its flexible curriculum, rigorous course offerings and small class size.  Students are involved in community service, athletics, performing arts and clubs.  Mater Dei Prep is focused on educating the full student.
