Project Acceleration is a concurrent enrollment program within the College of Arts and Sciences at Seton Hall University, that has allowed high school students in New Jersey and New York to get a head start on their university careers. Over the course of their high school career, students can earn up to 22 credits from Seton Hall University for approved courses taken in their secondary schools. Subjects include mathematics, computer science, biology, chemistry, physics, economics, psychology, political science, sociology, history, communication, English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Latin, Greek, Japanese, music, art, and education. The college credits earned through Project Acceleration are accepted at more than 200 colleges and universities. There are currently 70 high schools offering Project Acceleration courses and approximately 3000 students participate each year.

Nutley High School participates in the project acceleration program. This site provides information about the various courses that Nutley High School offers that are aligned with Project Acceleration. In order for a course to be approved, both course curriculum and instructor must be approved by the faculty at Seton Hall. Nutley offers both semester courses and full year courses. Registration for fall semester and full year courses ends late September. Students can register for spring semester courses in January. Students must be enrolled in the appropriate course, and have the approved instructor to qualify. Registration forms will be provided to teachers, or can be obtained through the Nutley science office. The fee for Project Acceleration is $75 per credit.  (Please note that some courses are three credits, while others are four credits.)  Forms can be turned into each instructor.
