A Little Bit About Us
Our mission is to provide quality learning in a Christ-centered atmosphere for our students, families and staff. We believe each student’s academic potential will flourish when it is nurtured and developed. By accepting and affirming each child, we recognize them as the children of God that they are uniquely and wonderfully created to be.
We believe the best education is a well-rounded education that involves many caregivers. At SEAS, we create an environment that emphasizes:
- Receiving a top-notch education in a Christ-centered environment.
- Serving those around us, whether it’s in the school, the community, or the world.
- Partnering with parents like you, who are a huge part of what makes our school great!
What is different at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton?
God has made us all wonderfully unique, and we find great joy in celebrating and nurturing the uniqueness each child brings to our school.
We know that without love, all that we do is nothing but a resounding gong. From every staff person to each student, we encourage kindness to always come first.
Our Patron Saint
Elizabeth Ann Seton
Born in New York City in 1774, Elizabeth Ann Bayley experienced tremendous loss as a young person. She lost her mother at the age of 3, and then later in life, she lost her husband at a very young age.
Born into an episcopal family, Elizabeth discovered Catholicism after becoming a widow and joined the Catholic Church in 1805 in New York. Despite having a hard life (she was the mother of five children), Elizabeth founded the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph’s, the first community for religious women. She also began the St. Joseph’s Academy and Free School, planting the seeds of Catholic education in the United States.
Mother Seton, as she is often referred to, was canonized in 1975 by Pope Paul VI. She was the first citizen born in the United States to be given the title of “Saint.”
Here at SEAS, we are honored to follow her trailblazing heart to bring a Christ-centered education to all those who seek it.
