Tours and School Visits
Applicants are encouraged to visit Seton and attend classes for a day or part of a day. School visits may be arranged by appointment only. We will arrange for your child to shadow one of our students for all or part of a school day. Please contact the school to arrange a tour or a visit at least one week prior to the day you hope to schedule the appointment.
Note: Due to COVID-19 classroom size restrictions, shadowing is not currently available.
Families interested in Seton are strongly encouraged to attend our Open House for parents and prospective students. The Open House provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the philosophy and academic standards of Seton School. Following the formal presentation, visitors will meet our faculty, tour the school, talk with families of current students, and attend “mini-classes” in several subject areas. The Seton Open House will take place at the Corpus Christi Building across from Seton School. The Corpus Christi Building and Seton School will be available for tours. Note: Due to COVID-19, a virtual Open House may occur in addition to or in lieu of the scheduled in-person Open House. Plans will be finalized by late October. Registration may be required.
Next Open House
Note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Seton will hold a Spring virtual Open House in lieu of an in-person event. Plans will be finalized by late February. Registration may be required. Please continue to check this site for updates.
