As a graduate of the class of 1991, I can say that this school gave me my voice. Mother Seton has given me so much of who I am today. I am excited the my daughter is now looking to attend MSR! When I walked in the halls, the school is in beautiful condition - its like the foundations of the past have the modern educational benefits. I would highly recommend this school to any young lady.

I am an alumna. Mother Seton is the Best School ever!!! The academics are challenging, but we are so well prepared for college and beyond. We have lots of sports if you are into sports. Leadership opportunities are plentiful. I was able to run for office and participate in Student Council and Ambassadors. The best memories I have are the Weekend Retreat at Harvey Cedars on LBI and Spirit Week. I''m really glad I chose Mother Seton and I am grateful to my parents for deciding to let me go to this school.
