Week of Jan. 30, 2023
This year’s theme for Catholic Schools Week is Faith, Excellence, Service. As we prepare to celebrate CSW this week, we are reminded of the many benefits a Catholic education provides and its impact in a child’s life…
Benefits of a Catholic Education:
- Catholic school students learn that God is present and active in their lives and in the world.
- Catholic school students learn that excellence is a response to God’s blessings.
- Catholic schools promote service as an essential component of their curriculum.
- Catholic schools promote self-discipline through clarity of moral vision based on the Gospel.
- Catholic school students learn to experience God’s grace and presence in their lives through their relationships with family, friends, and teachers.
Catholic schools are ranked #1 in the percentage of graduates who actively participate in civic and community activities such as voting, volunteering, letter writing to legislators, Catholic Concerns Day, and donations to charity, not just for a tax write-off, but out of a sense of the requirements of justice.
~Rev. Ronald J. Nuzzi, Ph.D., Dir. Catholic Leadership Programs, (ACE), Univ. of Notre Dame
Thank you believing in Catholic education and for the partnership we share…#SetonStrong!
Demand for enrollment at Seton is at an all-time high. Current families are asked to please re-enroll by the February 17 deadline to take advantage of the “Early Bird Enrollment Fee Discount”. This saves $100 on each student’s re-enrollment fee and guarantees your child’s seat for the 2023-24 school year. All re-enrollment is completed online via the FACTS Family Portal.
