What Colleges Say

I have a lot of personal experience with the Seton students. They are very involved in the college.  We find them as leaders.

Recently, I had lunch with Kerin Casey, who is one of our top freshmen from Rhode Island, and you can just tell the formation that she received through the Seton program really carried on here at Benedictine College.  That’s exactly the type of person we are excited about. Stephen Minnis

President, Benedictine College

Seton graduates excel in the academic arena, as well as in their extra-curricular pursuits.

Over the past number of years, our top scholars in each graduating class have come from a Seton Home Study background.

Seton graduates do very well at Christendom College – it’s an ideal partnership. Tom McFadden

Vice President of Enrollment, Christendom College

Seton students are very well rounded. We found that homeschooled children overall are well prepared.

Approximately 15% of the incoming freshman class every year are homeschooled students.

Of them, Seton are probably the best prepared. Thomas Keefe

President, University of Dallas

Home schooling helped me develop strong study skills and self-discipline necessary to succeed in a rigorous academic and military environment. Jonathan David Bate

Graduate of the United States Military Academy. He was the honor graduate, that is, he was first in his class. In his four years at the Military Academy, Bate received numerous awards. Among these were the Truman Scholarship for the study of International Affairs, the Gen. Pershing Memorial Award for highest military rating in Military Science, the Gen. Wood Distinguished Cadet Award, and several others.

What Our Families Say

For high school, I wanted to enroll my older children in a thoroughly Catholic program that could offer them superior educational opportunities and reinforce their faith while relieving me of some of the more mundane tasks like grade calculating and assignment scheduling.

Seton Home Study fit that bill for us.

Homeschooling has been a tremendous blessing in our family life. It has allowed us the time to experience life together and it keeps our hearts and minds centered on the domestic church. Like many homeschool families, my children don’t segregate themselves by ages inside of our home or out. It is a joy to watch the toddler in the arms of his teenaged brothers when they are chatting with friends or to spy my younger boys playing games with their older sisters.

The Brelinsky Family

It was also important for us to be able to instill in our children the wholesome values and attitudes that we were raised with and still believed in so deeply.

We wanted them to know the value of hard work, of respecting others, of being charitable, and we definitely wanted them to know the objective reality of right and wrong. We wanted them to love the beauty of our earthly life, but seek the perfection of a heavenly one.

Seton has helped us to accomplish these goals with our children….We are so grateful for this gift of a homeschooling, family-focused lifestyle, and we can’t imagine life any other way!

I’m so grateful for Seton!” – Lisa Marie W.
