Transforming Catholic Education

Seton Catholic Schools aims to be transformational, for our schools, students, families and communities. We have a unique opportunity to make a significant impact that reaches beyond the classroom and into our Milwaukee neighborhoods and parish communities.

A New Beginning

Catholic education is changing right before our eyes—and we are proud to be driving this transformation.

Seton Catholic Schools is a new educational model designed to strengthen Milwaukee’s Catholic parish schools and the Milwaukee community. Our mission is to provide a transformational educational system committed to overcoming social and academic challenges, empowering students, families and educators to realize their God-given potential.

As a collaborative school network, we are committed to learning from each other while embracing local school traditions and building upon the foundation of excellence in Catholic education. Schools in the Seton network collaborate on academics, faith formation and school operations.

Academically, we are updating instructional practices and resources and supporting teachers with world-class coaching and professional development to ensure each student is growing in mind, body and spirit. We are also working closely with parish and Archdiocesan leaders to invest in spiritual formation for our faculty, staff and students.

Seton’s finance and operations team partners with schools and parishes to reduce the administrative burden on school leaders. This collaboration allows principals to focus on academic and spiritual leadership and create efficiencies that keep more funds in classrooms where the biggest impact can be made.
