Announcements

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.
