We expect to have this technology up and running in the near future, using Edline. We encourage parents/guardians to contact teachers for updates on students’ academic progress.

Are parents involved?

Parent involvement and community service is a requirement. Our families recognize that students are most likely to succeed when they have support at home and at school. Our families are very active and very involved in their children’s education. Parents/guardians consistently demonstrate a 100% attendance rate at required meetings and report card conferences. All Mother Seton Academy families complete five or more service hours per year.
