New Student Enrollment

Welcome to Seton Catholic!

Seton Catholic is built on the vision of our founder Sister Elizabeth Ann Seton: to foster in children an ongoing commitment to address the needs of others in the community and around the world through works of peace and justice. 

We are deeply rooted in tradition and have a strong foundation upon which to build a dynamic curricular and extracurricular program. Cutting-edge technologies inspire innovative teaching practices, drive student-led exploration, and redefine the traditional learning paradigm. Like our founders before us, Seton is pioneering a new educational landscape. 

Our remarkable faculty creates a secure environment in which students take risks, ask challenging questions, and grow in confidence and ability. Faculty members are models of lifelong learning and Catholic/Christian values. In a quest to develop their own spiritual identity, each student explores questions of personal integrity, ethical decision-making, and social justice. Based on a tradition of inspiring life-long learning and service to others, Seton Catholic provides a community of academic excellence, balanced with faith, hope, and empowerment. 

Every single child matters at Seton. We are committed to serving them academically, spiritually, athletically, and artistically. In partnership with families, we help each child reach their true potential. We hope you join us on this most exciting journey.

Again, welcome to the Seton Family!
