Inspired by Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton and rooted in our Catholic faith, Seton Catholic School fosters spiritual development, academic excellence, responsibility to self, and service to others.
A dream put into action by a group of parents is how the Seton story began. In 1994, a group of parents near Hudson, Ohio, discussed the limited options for Catholic elementary education in their community. Unwilling to accept that their children could not be educated in the Catholic school system due to full enrollments and long waiting lists at neighboring communities’ Catholic schools, they formed an exploratory committee to determine need and support for a new Catholic school in Hudson.
Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton was the first native-born American saint. Credited with starting Catholic education in the United States, she opened the first Catholic school on February 22, 1810 in Baltimore, Maryland.
