Catholic Homeschool Curriculum
Seton was founded by the wife of famed Catholic historian Dr. Warren Carroll (the founder of Christendom College), and so history has always been one of our most passionate subjects. History is not the mere collection of facts about past events, it requires a context and framework in which to understand the significance of past events. Any truly Catholic history takes the most significant event in human history, the Incarnation, as its center. All of history, in some sense, is understood in relation to this event. Even our Western calendar is divided into BC and AD at the point of the Incarnation.
Seton’s History, Geography, Government, and Economics are all studied from a Catholic perspective and encourage a critical understanding of events and their significance.
