Mother Seton School, named in honor of the saint known as the Mother of Catholic Education, is the direct descendant of St. Joseph's Academy and Free School, the first Catholic school for girls in the United States. Over 200 years later, the Daughters of Charity remain committed to the future of Mother Seton School and the school remains committed to the community surrounding it. The school continually evolves to meet the challenges of today. It welcomes boys and girls of all faiths and ethnicities, and it upholds its founding mission to be affordable and accessible to all who seek a Catholic education. Generations of proud, successful graduates return to teach and send their own children to their alma mater. The significant work of Mother Seton and the Daughters of Charity will continue to be a lasting and important part of the future of Mother Seton School and of Catholic education.
Your contributions, whether through gifts to our Annual Fund, Planned Giving, or Teacher Wish Lists, honor Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton's legacy and help it to endure, so that generations of children may benefit from the solid academics and solid values that are hallmarks of Catholic education at Mother Seton School.
