Academic Excellence

Academic Excellence for All Students

Catholic schools have a long-standing history of providing the highest quality education to students from all faith, ethnic and economic backgrounds. Seton Catholic Schools is proud to build upon that tradition while transforming programming and instructional practices to meet the needs of today’s students.

To address changing student needs, we have developed a comprehensive educational approach based on best practices from high-performing urban and suburban schools in the region and around the country. Students continue to learn from standards approved by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and we are shifting instructional practices to ensure high-levels of student engagement.

To accelerate student achievement in foundational skill areas, Seton students participate in 90 minutes of English and Language Arts instruction and 60 minutes of math instruction each day, as well as targeted small group intervention and enrichment.

We are also committed to a holistic education. All students participate in religious, art, music and physical education each week.
