About Seton School
Seton is a private, co-educational school operated by Catholic laymen and women
We are dedicated to promoting the tradition of Catholic secondary education. Seton offers personalized instruction, regarding each child as of infinite value in the sight of God and therefore deserving of our best efforts to meet his/her individual needs.
Seton School is a private school affiliated with the Diocese of Arlington. Seton School is under the authority of the bishop in matters of religion education and qualifications of our religion teachers, who are certified by the Diocese of Arlington. In other areas Seton is independent.
An Academic Commitment
The end of Catholic education is the Glory of God. Therefore, true Catholic education should be committed to academic excellence, leading each student to develop his intellectual abilities to the highest possible extent so that he can use them in the service of Christ and His Church.
Modern education in all subject matter areas and at all levels has been watered down on the premise that the child can’t learn “hard things”. But this lowering of standards betrays a lack of respect for the child, and such disrespect has no place in Catholic education.
Seton education challenges the child to do his best. Essay tests and term papers are the norm in the high school classes and the courses in the lower grades prepare the child for the high school curriculum.
