Why Teach at Seton

The Seton Career Difference

Building on the longstanding tradition of Catholic education, Seton is creating a renewed, collaborative environment for educators and their students to reach their God-given potential.

We are a different kind of school network. Embedded in our parishes and neighborhoods, we focus on building community, collaborating across grade levels and schools, and working together to drive continuous improvement in every way we serve students and their families.

As a Seton teacher, you play a unique role in leading student academic instruction and character formation. And, all of our schools have art, music and physical education.
As part of a 14-school network, you’ll never be alone. Our teachers are connected to resources, ideas and support from educators across the region.
Immerse yourself in our diverse parish and neighborhood communities. Grow in your own faith by participating in regular school activities.
Seton prioritizes and invests in over 15 days of unparalleled professional development annually. Now you can improve your craft and grow at every stage of your career.
We are actively developing new opportunities for sustainable career growth and leadership development across our growing network.


Serve within Diverse, Faith-filled Communities

Our parish schools have deep roots in rich, diverse communities across Milwaukee – and we’re proud to serve students and families from all racial, ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds. Learn more about our schools.

As a first year teacher, being part of a network is comforting. I love collaborating with teachers who have similar experiences.
