A Letter Home from College after Homeschooling

You were my only teacher in high school, but I couldn’t have asked for a better one. You taught me more than you’ll ever know and much more than I could ever ask for. By homeschooling me, you changed the very core of my being from a lost and bewildered little girl into the strong woman I am proud to be. It was through your example and growth that I have become the only thing I have ever wanted to be – I have become me…

Christmas Time in High School

As we move toward December, we all think about Christmas. It’s a busy time, and it’s easy to put off schoolwork. However, students in high school don’t have as much leeway as elementary students.

For those of you looking across the canyon to college on the other side, getting there might seem a bit daunting. Fortunately, Seton is here as a bridge between you and college…

Did you recently begin homeschooling and do your teens miss their old school and old friends? Are they rebellious and disrespectful?…

Family School of Love and Virtues

Every Catholic knows the primacy of love in the Christian life. Jesus’ words (Mt. 19:19 and 22:37) about love of God and love of one’s neighbor as oneself immediately come to mind, as does St. Paul’s warning (I Cor. 1:13) that without charity as a motive, all that we do becomes “sounding brass and tinkling cymbal.”…
