Letter from the Director
As you begin your homeschooling journey, I want to thank you. Over the years, our counselors and I have received the thanks of thousands of Catholic parents. But, the real thanks belong to you.
Many people look in books or movies to find heroes, but at Seton Home Study School, we do not need to look far for heroes. We have the honor of speaking to you homeschooling parents almost every day. You homeschooling mothers and fathers are our heroes. Thank you for allowing us to support you on your homeschooling journey—a journey that will strengthen your children’s faith, knowledge, understanding, and self-motivation.
Inside your Catholic home, you provide an environment in which knowing, loving, and serving God is respected and protected. Inside your home, you teach about the wonder of life and the wonder of the universe. You instill in them the love of God, the love of life, and the love of learning that they will cherish all their lives.
Pope St. John Paul II always maintained that a new springtime is coming in the Church. When this springtime arrives, and you look around and see people renewed with spiritual vigor, please do me a favor. Think back on the days and nights spent teaching your children. Recall the hours spent sounding out letters in Phonics. Remember the joy of re-reading a favorite book from your youth as you help your child with a book report. When this springtime arrives, breathe in the scent of this new spiritual bouquet. Think back to your days of homeschooling, and say to yourself, “I helped.” You are quietly changing the world. You are changing America. Most importantly, you are changing your children.
Pope Paul VI once said, “Every mother is like Moses. She does not enter the Promised Land. She prepares a world she will not see.” At Seton, we look forward to serving you on your journey to the Promised Land. It will not always be easy, but it will always be rewarding, and we will be with you. You are not alone.
On behalf of the entire Seton staff, thank you for letting us help you teach your children. You could give us no greater gift.
Welcome to the Seton family.
Keeping the Holy Family as our model,
Mary Kay Clark, Ph.D.
