Seton Catholic Schools is a fantastic new way of learning – and it’s about to change how the city views Catholic education.
The landscape of Catholic education is evolving. The traditional model of one parish and one school as an insular unit is no longer the sole best way to serve students, both in Milwaukee County and nationwide. Shifting demographics and escalating school-related costs have encouraged schools and parishes to reconsider how to prepare students academically and spiritually for the challenges of high school and life — both here on earth and eternally.
That’s where Seton Catholic Schools comes in.
As part of a new initiative by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, nine Milwaukee Parental Choice Schools will be developed into an active network that works to strengthen the educational, community, and faith experiences of students, staff, and community members.
Collaboration has a rich history in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. More than twenty years ago, education pioneers in areas like Beaver Dam and Waukesha redefined how we approach Catholic education — both in the classroom and in administrative support.
Seton Catholic Schools will turbocharge this tradition of collaboration that has worked to improve education for the children of Milwaukee County.
Moving into the future, this network seeks to improve student academic performance, access to Catholic education for families of all socio-economic backgrounds, and engagement between the school, parish and community.
By strengthening schools, the parishes and neighborhoods will also be strengthened: after all, it is said — it takes a village to raise a child.
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is committed to this vision… a vision of transforming education so families, neighborhoods, and the city are better off due to the presence, outreach and faith-based values of Catholic schools.
