Though Seton is located in the United States, we serve homeschooling families from all across the world. This page provides particular information about a few countries in which we have students, as well as information for military families serving abroad.
There had been some shipping delays earlier due to Covid-19, but due to a new arrangement with DHL, we will be able to start shipping again to our most common countries like the Philippines, UAE, and Qatar. Hopefully we can now ship to almost every country.

One common question we receive is whether Seton Home Study School is accredited by the Philippine Department of Education (DepEd)?
DepEd accredits schools located in the Philippines, and as Seton is an American school with our offices in the United States, Seton is outside of the DepEd jurisdiction. However, Seton records are accepted in the Philippines. We issue transcript of records to our students and an American diploma to our graduates. We have several graduates who are now studying in different Philippine universities like University of the Philippines, Ateneo De Manila University, University of Sto Tomas and De La Salle Universities. For families who want to shift to a regular school from Grades 1 to 10, it is best to ask the school its requirements for international students with an American transcript. The requirements vary from different schools. From our many years experience, students who used Seton transcripts in transitioning to Senior High and College in Philippine schools have been accepted. They are performing excellently in their chosen courses.
Serving Military Families
Seton is proud to serve our families currently in active military service. To further serve you, we have developed a special discount specifically for active military families: a $30 savings per child for Grades Pre-K through 12th grade.
If you enroll online, enter code MILITARY in the comments so that we will know to process your enrollment as an active military enrollment. If you enroll at a conference, be sure to mention your active military status. This military discount still applies even after the standard per-child conference discount.
The Value of Your Enrollment
Your enrollment provides you with much more than just a box of books. It provides an accredited education, a strong support system, and a community of staff and homeschoolers who are in your corner. It provides access to academic and support counseling, grading and record keeping, and a solid Catholic curriculum that promotes strong Catholic values in each and every subject.
