Religious Education Program
Seton Catholic School will provide a program whereby the Catholic faith is not only taught but also experienced in our daily lives. Participation in religious instruction is required of all students. Our program includes:
Seton Catholic School provides the preparation that is necessary to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist. The religious curriculum taught during the school day at Seton includes the instruction needed to receive both of these sacraments. Families are required to contact their parish for specific information regarding the sacraments.
Seton Catholic School uses the State-approved curriculum of the Diocese of Cleveland. All faculty are properly certified by the State of Ohio. In addition, teachers of Religion are trained and certified by the Diocese. The instructional time allocation and the curriculum for each subject area meet the standards of the Ohio Department of Education. The Diocese of Cleveland includes the following subject areas in core curriculum:
Homework is an integral component of each student's education. It provides an opportunity for students to explore and master skills more thoroughly than class time will allow. All children have from 20 minutes (primary) to 60 minutes (intermediate, junior high) of homework each night.
"What is it that makes Seton so great? Is it the way our Principal knows each student by name? The mission statement and prayer read each morning? The birthday greeting in the announcements? The sense of holiness that resonates throughout the school because the Chapel is a step away from the classroom? The genuine student engagement in school Masses? I say it is all of these things and much more!" - Seton Parent
