As a parent, it is my job to teach my daughters to be strong and independent young women. We can't be with them 24-7 to instill this in them. Seton Academy is an integral partner in instilling the virtues of, intelligence, strength and independence in my daughters. They work with parents as partners in their education and development. Both my daughters have attended Seton Academy since Pre-School and their intellectual and psychological growth cannot be compared to their public school peers. If you want to raise a strong, smart and independent young woman, Seton Academy for Girls is the partner in education you need!

Seton Academy for Girls is the one affordable all-girl school within 30 miles. The benefits of single-sex education are so numerous, but the key for me is developing the confidence to succeed in whatever you try. Once the confidence to succeed is instilled in a child, the possibilities are endless. My daughter has attended for 6 consecutive years; not once have we had to force/bribe/ or had to use any other tactic to get her into school each day - she LOVES school - the quality of the education is excellent - a small school with caring, capable teachers. Whether your daughter is above average or below, she will learn to do HER best - not the class average. 5 stars

This school is a wonderful learning environment for children. All of the students have excellent manners. Each teacher spends time with each child's needs.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
