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.

To learn more about Seton’s humble beginnings and the so-called “little school that could,” we invite you to read the following article: Anne Carroll builds her school of dreams – The Arlington Catholic Herald

Seton is dedicated to promoting the tradition of Catholic secondary education and stresses rigorous academics, high standards of conduct, close cooperation with parents, and offers a multitude of activities available to all students.
