- Saint James/Seton School is committed to providing a safe and nurturing learning environment in which our students can receive a quality, faith-filled Catholic education. In partnership with the Christian family community, we aim to develop each student's full academic potential and strive to teach the Gospel message in order to share it with the world. All that the school provides is meant to complement the efforts of parents in providing similar faith development experiences at home. When both the family and the school community make continuous efforts to assist students in the formation of their faith, students grow in and become committed to their faith. The Church is strengthened in its mission of proclaiming the Gospel. We ask that you continue your efforts in faith development and continue to model for your children the discipleship of Christ. Your own commitment to prayer, to the Eucharistic liturgy, to the Sacrament of Reconciliation, to service of others, and to compassion and assistance to those in need, will form your children in practices that will enable them to deepen their relationship with God. St. James/Seton School's mission is to provide the best Christ-centered education possible for each child. In order to accomplish this, there must be a concentrated, cooperative effort between the parent(s) and the school. The school's curriculum guides students in their expected knowledge and skill development. Teachers provide instructional experiences and guidance to assist students in mastering the material. Teachers also know that diligence and self-discipline are essential to academic success and the full realization of each student's potential. They expect diligence and self-discipline on the part of each student. Parents who expect diligence and self-discipline of their children, who require development of good study habits, well-done assignments, and supplementary reading, greatly enhance their children's academic achievement. We ask that you continue to expect from your children these high standards. Together, we can best prepare them for, not only the world they face, but the world they live in now.
