Elizabeth Seton Academy,an excellent all girls Catholic high school is the only one of it's kind in the City of Boston. Academic superiority guarantees that every girl that applies to college will be accepted to college. It is a small, nurturing academic environment with a moral compass.

I am a teacher at this school, therefore there is an obvious bias, but I have seen the amazing changes in so many young women who go to this school and strongly believe that this school is a hidden gem. A student is never overlooked here because of the small class sizes and a dedicated staff who truly care about each of their students as individuals. Students are offered academic opportunities like honors classes, dual enrollment at local colleges, and an after school program where students can get help from teachers or their peers with their homework. The school has three sports teams (soccer, basketball, and soccer), a creative writing group, student council, a choir, and other fun activities to become involved in. ESA is a place that teaches young women to be respectful of themselves and others, while also preparing them for the rigors of college. I strongly suggest that, if you're interested in ESA, you take the time to visit in order to see how special this school is.

Personally, I would not recommend this school. - Academics weren't challenging to me. First year molded all kids together in each class, regardless of the varied intellectual abilities, which really did not prove to be helpful to many; most were either bored or struggling to keep up. Classes are not varied either in any year; they only will teach one language, Spanish, for ex. - Teachers. Some good, some not so much. A few in particular tended to be rather rude, to the point where it would effect their teaching abilities. One teacher, for example, would criticize anyone asking a question. At one point she compared some of my peers' intellectual abilities to barn animals. - Easily fall through cracks. I found that the many tended to not understand a lot of material to the point of failing classes with seemingly not any school or teacher intervention. They ended up trying to start a tutoring program, but they ended up giving some students that had relatively good grades a tutor, while not giving some of those failing one. -Environment. While I never experienced bullying myself, some kids very much encroached upon that territory with others with no apparent school action taken.
