School Notes:

  • Seton Academy offers college preparatory, advanced placement, and honors academic programs. Students are required to complete 24 academic credits prior to graduation - exceeding state standards - so your child will be well prepared to attend the college of their choice. For the past decade 100% of our graduates have been accepted to colleges and universities across the country. Seton Academy is the first Archdiocesan sponsored high school to introduce the Student Laptop Initiative. All students are issued a laptop furnished by IBM/Lenovo with access to a wireless network and an on-site Lenovo repair center to provide maintenance and support. Students can access textbooks online, take class notes, research projects, and use email communication with faculty and staff as just a few of the practical applications that will increase their confidence and technological skills. Seton Academy welcomes students from all religious affiliations, and offers spiritual retreats, worship services, and independent religious study to provide a balanced program for our students. Spiritual empowerment is a priority at Seton Academy and students are expected to model respect, integrity and cooperation for the common good. Seton Academy is a community of partners with our parents, alumni and municipal community. Seton students are dedicated to improving their communities through civic projects and volunteerism including the Great Week of Seton Service. Seton Academy encourages students to become contributing members of their communities, be good neighbors, to celebrate diversity. At Seton Academy our students have over 25 extracurricular activities to choose from. More than 75% of our students are involved in extracurricular activities. In addition, Seton Academy's athletics program has continued to maintain strength and stature with physical conditioning, team work, sportsmanship through several coeducational sports. Our athletes, 80% of which are on the honor roll, live our philosophy “play hard or go homeâ€. Our school believes in giving everyone a chance to join in – so get involved!
