Tuition & Financial Aid

Seton is an independent, self-sustaining Catholic school that does not receive direct financial support from any parish or religious order. Therefore, we work very hard to keep Seton's tuition as affordable as possible.

Tuition for 2017-18

  • $5,750 for the first child
  • $5,463 for the second child
  • $5,175 for the third child
  • $4,888 for the fourth and over

(Tuition for the 2018-19 school year will be set in January 2018.)

Total operating cost to educate a student at Seton Catholic School exceeds the tuition amount. Fundraising efforts both school-sponsored and grant/donor solicited – including our Annual Fund, “A Night To Remember” auction event, and Golf Outing – are important elements that offset the true cost of a Seton education. 

Financial Aid

Seton provides a completely confidential tuition assistance process. The generosity of contributions to Seton from the Caniglia, Curtin, Scott, Selner, Sorgi and Walker families through the Arthur and Jane Caniglia Scholarship, Teresa Scott Devine Memorial Scholarship, Marilyn McSherry Curtin Scholarship Endowment, Selner Family Scholarship, The Lucy Sorgi Financial Aid Endowment, and Pat and Jeanette Walker Fund - as well as monies from the Sister Marie Damicone Scholarship Fund, help to provide need-based funds. In addition, a family may reduce its tuition costs through use of the Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP).

"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
