Seton Academy in Kansas City is an incredible place where every teacher knows every student and cares about them and pushes them to succeed beyond what they knew was possible

This school really gave me a second chance to get my life back on track. It was hard work but i made it and a year before my graduating class. This is a great school!!!!

This school is a very great school! I was far behind in my credits. My year to graduate was 2005. I walked across the stage in 2005!!! This school made me very proud of myself. Any teen that think they will be left behind on there graduation day, think again. Enroll in Seton Center!

I think that if a student works hard and puts forth effort in accomplishing goals and finishing assignments, they can achieve their goals and graduate with success. It is not just a teachers job to be accountable for the success of the student, but it is a student's job and parents effort supporting their child in their assignments that will promote a positive experience for all. Therefore, I believe Seton is a nice school for students who have fell by the wayside and need a helping hand.

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.
