Did you know? The actual cost to educate a child at MSS is over $9000.
We work hard to keep tuition costs the most affordable in Washington County, Frederick County, and Carroll County in order to hold true to the legacy of Mother Seton. The result is that our tuition covers only 59% of the actual cost. By partnering with SchoolAdmin for a new billing system, we are able to save costs and run more efficiently, thus keeping overall tuition costs down for everyone.

COLD AND FLU SEASON
At this time, we have two confirmed cases of flu in the MSS community. In an effort to contain any outbreak, please keep your child at home if your student is exhibiting flu symptoms. Remember, as stated in the handbook, your child must be free of fever, vomiting or diarrhea for a full 24 hours before they can be re-admitted to class. Additionally, if your child is on antibiotics, they should be taken for a full 24 hours before returning to class.
In an effort to protect children who may be immuno-compromised, if your child is diagnosed with the flu, please call the office and let us know.
Thank you for your help in this matter!
