Quote

"A Catholic education to so many may embody only the stereotypical image of uniforms, prayers, strict rules and teachers. However, if that is as much as you desire to know about all that a Catholic education is, then you are simply depriving yourself of the reason, the drive, the love, the care, the reality that is behind any stereotype. Stereotypes are for people who have been blinded by mediocrity; Seton opened my eyes and gave me sight." - Seton Alumnus
