One of the recent major accomplishments for our school was the awarding of the Blue Zones certification. Due to our efforts and focus on health, fitness and overall well-being, we are known as one of the schools in the Southwest Florida community that promotes healthier living habits. Our “Seton 60” movement program was recognized as an innovate way to have every person in our school community make the effort to move for a minimum of 60 minutes a day with the goal of creating a healthier-happier place. Our school mission statement was updated to include the word “physical” in emphasizing our commitment to athletics and fitness by “nurturing the development of each student to achieve their spiritual, intellectual, physical and social potential.”
