Seton provides everything a student needs for the present and future. They have old fashion values that are missing in public schools. The teachers, staff, and administration are truly dedicated to seeing that students are well rounded. The principals are involved and aren't swayed by politics or sports activities. Every student is important and valuable. Families are involved and cared about the community. Seton totally rocks!
Seton does a great job of providing the small school atmoshere while minimizing the negative side effects. I enrolled in 7th grade and I never felt alienated or uncomfortable as the new guy. The class is small enough that you are basically forced to become friends with everybody. That has the potential to stunt your social growth, but I never felt that way either. The people in my class adjusted very well the the much larger Richmond High School with that time came. The individual attention is superb. They seem to favor reality over policy when dealing with academic, disciplinary, or extra-cirricular issues. It's hard to describe just how refreshing that is. The dress code was a little over the top, but that's ok. I really have very few negative things to say about Seton. If you don't mind ditching your wardrobe and you don't mind getting killed in sports, I would highly recommend this school as an alternative to the "big box" operation that is Richmond Community Schools.
Seton or St. Elizabeth Ann Seton schools provides a wonderful place for your child. Besides getting a excellent education, you will get a feeling of community and family. It has high expectations and teaches your child life skills that will last a lifetime.
As a former Seton star , I am now sending my children there and highly recommend Seton to other families in the community! Not only does Seton provide a wonderful education; they teach students Christian values they can carry with them for their entire lives!
