Affording MSS

YES! You CAN afford strong academics and solid values for your child.

Having experienced deep poverty herself, Mother Seton never lost an opportunity to provide for those who were poor. She appropriately named her original school in Emmitsburg St. Joseph Academy and Free School and made it clear that all students were welcome—those whose families were rich in worldly goods and those whose families had scarce financial resources.

Faithful to the legacy of St. Elizabeth Ann, Mother Seton School remains committed to providing a Catholic education to students from families of diverse economic backgrounds.

SCRIP/Grocery Gift Card Program

Buy gift cards through MSS and receive a percentage of the purchase price as a tuition reduction credit.

Families may also make an appointment with the Principal to discuss their financial needs. We make every effort to assist families who seek a quality Catholic education for their children.
