Academics

Curriculum

Elizabeth Seton High School requires students to complete successfully a minimum of 24 credits in order to graduate. During each academic year, students must carry 6.5 or 7 credits. All courses are college-preparatory. Placement into appropriate level courses is made through a coordinated effort that involves the student, her parents, her guidance counselor, and her teacher(s). Incoming freshmen are given placement testing that is used in conjunction with the student's middle school performance profile to ensure appropriate course placement. The following table details the school's minimum graduation requirements for each department:

During their time at Seton, students will complete service hours, with an emphasis on serving those most in need in our communities. Many service opportunities are sponsored by Seton's Campus Ministry Office. Students may also participate in service opportunities, which they have discovered on their own.
