Certified Maryland Green School


Mother Seton School is a Pre-K - Grade 8 Catholic school for all. Nestled on fourteen and a half acres of campus, we are a proud Maryland Green School and have been since 2009.

Mother Seton School offers more than a solid academic and ethical foundation. A genuinely loving and welcoming community—a true family of teachers, students and parents—helps shape children who grow strong and true. Students learn by example to model their lives on the Christian virtues of humility, simplicity, charity and love. Graduates are recognized as hard-working, high-achieving individuals of integrity, dedicated to bettering themselves and the world
around them.

Ever present in the minds of the staff are opportunities to nurture conscience formation. We help our students to internalize Catholic values, which help them make sound moral choices, including being good stewards of the Earth.

We became a Green School because caring for the environment is such an important part of our mission. We are blessed to be on a campus that allows us to have solar panels on the roof, easy access to the rill that runs through our backyard, a rain garden between the parking lot and the rill, space for an herb garden, a butterfly garden, and lots of space for outdoor learning experiences. Every classroom has a paper recycling receptacle, scrap paper for student use, and rechargeable batteries.



Our herb garden is an outdoor classroom as well as a community herb garden.

Students in the Middle School presented their environmental experiments, research and inventions to our judges at the STEM Fair. Elementary students visited the fair during the school day and we invited the public to attend in the evening.
