Efficient and Sustainable Schools

Seton is a direct investment in Catholic education.

We are bringing new resources into schools and driving long-term sustainability.

While many stand-alone parish schools have struggled to remain financially sustainable, we are pioneering a new way forward that prioritizes both academic excellence and long-term sustainability so Catholic education continues for centuries to come

Our approach to sustainability is straightforward: Schools remain part of their parish, but Seton takes responsibility for financial and employment management. This model significantly reduces the administrative burden on principals and school staff while creating efficiencies to ensure more funds remain in classrooms. This is especially important for the underserved communities many of our parish schools serve.

The benefits of streamlining school operations include:

  • Streamlining services in finance, human resources, operations, and technology creates a long-term savings of $1.5 million
  • Eliminates duplication of services and creates efficiencies across the network
  • Maximizing efficiencies allows for the investment of more dollars in the classroom for optimal educational impact
  • Demonstrates fiscal responsibility to donors, supporters, parishioners, parents and others who financially support Catholic education
  • Shifts the focus of school leaders back to the classroom
  • Re-prioritizes academics within schools
  • Provides long-term sustainability for our schools

Seton is driving operational excellence in these areas:
