Curriculum

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:

  • Daily religion class
  • Prayer times
  • Liturgical and paraliturgical opportunities
  • Advent and Lenten observances
  • Service to the church, school, and community
  • Diocesan curriculum on Christian formation in sexuality

Sacramental Preparation

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.

Instructional Program

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:

  • Catholic Doctrine
  • Reading (Literature-based)
  • Phonics (Kindergarten - 3rd grade)
  • Mathematics
  • English
  • Spelling
  • Social Studies

Homework

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.

 

Quote

"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
