The History of Seton Catholic

Rooted in Traditions...

1989 - Our Foundation

Seton celebrates its position as a tradition in the community. On January 5, 1989, at a joint meeting of the Board of Trustees of Mount Assumption Institute and the School Board of St. John’s Academy presided over by the Most Reverend Stanislaus J. Brzana, Bishop of Ogdensburg, a resolution was passed that laid the foundation of Seton Catholic.

The richness of the traditions of both schools has laid a strong foundation for the future growth of Seton Catholic. In 2001, Seton further expanded to include a grade 7-8 program.

2004 - A New Campus

In 2004, we purchased and moved to a new school campus on New York Road, located on the former Plattsburgh Air Force Base. This move ushered in a new era and a solid future for  private education in the North Country. In 2015, the 6th-grade class was moved from Seton Academy to Seton Catholic, thereby creating a full 6th-8th-grade Middle School at the High School campus.

2018 - Seton Catholic Unification

In 2018, the Education Council and Diocese of Ogdensburg approved the unification of the elementary, middle, and high schools at the campus on New York Road.

The faculty members who serve these students are a group of dedicated people who bring their spirit of enthusiasm, concern for each person, professional excellence, and Christian values to the classroom.

In harmony with the spirit and charism of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, its patroness, Seton Catholic holds as its primary objective providing a quality education in a Catholic value-centered environment. Seton prides itself on the ongoing success story individually lived out by each of our alumni and the promise of hope they give our world for the future.
