We transferred to Seton from out-of-state and felt an instant connection when we visited the school. Our children have attended the school for 3 years & we could not be happier. The staff is friendly & knowledgable & the facilities are always clean & well-kept. The teachers are amazing! They are attentive & warm & bring creative new ideas to the classroom from Pinterest selections to the art fair to learning concepts. I have been especially pleased with communication with the teachers/staff. My emails/phone calls receive immediate attention & I never feel that any question or concern is too small. I appreciate that the teachers know us by name & that they are always approachable and accessible. The parent involvement in the school is unparalleled; you are encouraged to help in the classroom, serve lunch & go on field trips. These times give me the opportunity to meet other parents & spend time with the students. When I drop my kids off in the morning, I know they will be in a safe, respectful enviroment with wonderful people to guide their learning. They are truely happy and I couldn't ask for more. I would recommend Seton to everyone because Seton is our home!

This is the third year for our child to be in attendance at St Elizabeth Ann Seton school since starting in preschool in 2010 and now in 1st Grade. Whenever you enroll your child for private education you automatically start with high expectations of the education and experience he or she may receive. At this point we can honestly say that our expectations have been far exceeded. We are so pleased with Seton s commitment to their core values of Faith, Knowledge & Discipline and their faculty and staff lives and breathes it daily. We are amazed by the skill set our son has already acquired academically while only in the first grade and the content of his character reaffirms us that we made the right decision on his education. I am confident that we will continue our son s education through 8th Grade at Seton, especially if he has any say in the matter as he truly loves everything about the school.

We knew our search for a school for our son was over as soon as we stepped foot into Seton Catholic School and experienced such warmth and acceptance. Not only is it a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence but it is a school that feels right for our family. The staff is excellent, the students are great, there is such a feeling of welcome and a great sense of community. I know we made the best choice and love to see my son clapping when he sees his church and school and starts yelling "hoooooray" at the top of his lungs!

Seton Catholic School has been such a blessing to our family. We are so pleased with all that Seton has to offer. Our son is in third grade now and has been at Seton since Kindergarten. He loves going to school and it has been a wonder to watch how much he has grown these past four years. The teachers at Seton are exceptional and they expect the very best from each student. Seton has been exactly what we wanted for our children: Outstanding academics, excellent programs, exceptional teachers, a fantastic principal and staff, a safe environment, a positive atmoshere and a Catholic school with a Faith, Knowledge and Discipline based mission. We look forward to the future with Seton for our son and soon our daughter. We know their futures are bright. Seton Stars Rise Above!

Our family has been very pleased with Seton for the six years that we have been here. I am always pleased with what I see my kids accomplish. When talking with friends whose chilren don't go to Seton I always walk away proud that my kids go to such a wonderful school. Our children both started in the preschool program that is in my opinion the BEST in town. The preschool offers a full day program for those that work full-time. After attending preschool the children can go to playschool until 6:00. If I can't be at home with my kids then I can't think of a better place to send them. We are now in the third grade and love to see how much our kids have grown in the six years we have been at Seton. With Seton's Faith, Knowledge and Discipline I know my children will be confident, smart and well rounded individuals. Seton Stars Rise Above!

Seton Catholic School has been a wonderful school for all 4 of my children. My oldest son was 3 years old when he started at Seton and now he's in the 6th grade. My kids have never once complained a day about going to school. They wake up every day, eager to learn and excited to go to school. The Principal and the teachers are top notch and they truly care about their students. We are happy to sacrifice attending a Catholic school because it is well worth it!!! The school truly focuses on faith, knowledge and discipline. The smaller classrooms make your children accountable because they have to interact more with the teachers and other students which makes them more engaged and increases their knowledge. I am happy to recommend Seton Catholic School. It is no wonder they recently won the Blue Ribbon Award because it is truly "A school of Excellence!"

We just started Seton this year with our daughter in Kindergarten. The experience has been everything we hoped. The teacher is very attentive and compassionate, but also pushes for direct involvement by the parents and we can see wonderful results. Fairness and respect are also taught and encouraged. We are very happy at Seton! Not only do we feel as if our daughter is receiving a wonderful education, but we also are part of a wonderful community and want to be involved.

Our family has been very enthusiastic about our decision to raise our family in a private Catholic school setting. Seton Catholic School has provided a complete spectrum of solid academic education based in faith, knowledge and discipline. Our children will be well prepared for their future!

Seton Catholic School has been great for my children. The teachers and staff have high expectations of the students and will do whatever it takes to help the children reach those expectaions. When I talk with friends in other schools I am pleasantly surprised at what my children are learning and accomplishing at Seton as compared to other schools in the area. Parents are encouraged and welcome to volunteer as much as they choose too. Because of the small grade size, it is easy to get to know most all of the parents and children in your childs grade as well as other grades which is a compfort in knowing the families and friends my children are surrounded by at school and outside activities. I also appreciate the multitude of afterschool activity options provided by the school. The only somewhat negative is that we don't have a cafeteria or gym. But, we have hot lunch from restaurants brought in 3 days a week which my children enjoy much more than they would cafeteria food and our PE program is second to none even without a gym. They have even been successful in making the most of the negative so that the experience is as good as a school with those facilities!

Education is a priority in my household and I would not consider sending my children to any other school. Our experience at Seton has been exceptional. We have been with the school since its second year and have watched the curriculum grow by leaps and bounds. I feel the use of technology is incredible and that Seton's curriculum is second to none in this area. Even though it is a Catholic school, Seton has many students who are not Catholic. It is a safe, warm, and welcoming community. Parents are encouraged to volunteer and be a part of the school. Teachers and staff are always available to answer questions or to work with parents who have special needs for their children. Seton has always been open to new ideas to better the school. It is a place where faculty, staff, parents, and students have worked together to help their school become a true blue ribbon school.

Seton is more than just a school - it is a warm community with teachers who truly care about their students. My son struggled with focus at an early age, and the teachers have been so supportive and understanding, taking a personal interest in working with us to help him improve. The school leadership invites parent feedback and all parents pitch in to make this school a truly special place. In addition to strong academics, Seton also offers unique after-school activities like cartoon class.

Seton Catholic School is a welcoming place for both students and parents. Our son has been going to Seton since he was 3 years old and we couldn't be happier with the curriculum, faculty, staff or the support of the community. And our recent Blue Ribbon status reflects all of the above! I would recommend this school to any parent looking for a friendly and educationally challenging place for their children. Go Seton Stars!

Seton is a wonderful school and offers programs that will ensure your child has every opportunity to excel both academically and as an individual. The pre-school program is top notch with caring teachers and the perfect mix of fun and learning. Our son is in pre-k and enjoys 'special classes' with art, music, library, and P.E. The elementary classes are challenging and focus on the 'total child'. Our experience with the teachers have been above and beyond what we expected. They take the time to understand each childs strengths and opportunities - working collaboratively to create a positive environment that caters to the students growth in individual subject areas. Positives: Communication, Commitment to education, Blue Ribbon Award Winner, Volunteers, Challenging Curriculum

Seton offers a challenging curriculumn and a small classroom setting. Parent participation is welcome, and encouraged. It has all the fundamentals of an excellant school but needs a cafeteria and a playground.

We have had a great experience at Seton. Our child has been at the school for two years. The school community is very welcoming. The curriculum is tradational and just what we were looking for in a school. The students are well behaved and are allowed to learn without distractions. When you walk into the school the students and teachers are happy, smiling and relaxed.

Seton has been a wonderful place to build an important sense of belonging in my child that all kids need. I feel like it is a safe place for my child to learn and develop. The school helps in developing the whole child and the expectations are high.
