Train a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not swerve from it. – Proverbs 22:6
Founded by Mrs. Anne Carroll in 1975, the year of Mother Elizabeth Ann Seton’s canonization, Seton School is a private, co-educational school serving students from grades 7 to 12.

For Financial Aid consideration, families of accepted students must complete a financial aid application and provide requested financial documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. FACTS, an independent third party, assesses a family’s financial situation and recommends to Seton School the level of aid a family requires. The Seton administration exclusively makes final determination of all awarded aid. Seton’s financial assistance comes through a work program. Families receiving reduced tuition must work in various capacities to contribute to the betterment of Seton School. If the assigned work is not completed, then tuition will be assessed.
