Thank you for visiting our website and welcome to Mother Seton Academy, a tuition-free, independent Catholic Middle School located in Baltimore City. It is a pleasure to introduce you to the life and vitality of our school.

Mother Seton Academy serves over 80 boys and girls, grades 6 through 8, from urban, low-income families of all faiths and cultures. Over three years, our students advance academically, explore their interests and acquire life skills. They participate in sports, clubs and community service, and find ways to express themselves through art and music. The values our students develop at Mother Seton Academy guide their choices, actions and decisions into the future. Through a comprehensive Graduate Support Program, our students graduate to quality high schools and then matriculate to colleges or universities. In partnership with our families, Mother Seton Academy is committed to each student’s total development—academic, social, physical, spiritual and emotional—by emphasizing serious study and personal responsibility.

Since its founding in 1993, Mother Seton Academy has continued the proud tradition and outstanding legacy of providing quality education, particularly to families in need. Breaking the cycle of poverty and transforming lives through education remains the focus of our dedicated, tireless staff.

We are grateful to our sponsoring communities, our Board of Members and Board of Directors, our volunteers and the hundreds of individuals and organizations that provide financial support. Because of them, our school continues to impact the lives of our students and, ultimately, their families, their neighborhoods and our city.

Within the pages of our website, we invite you to learn more about our history, our unique mission, our programs, ways to become involved and how to help us continue to build hope and change the futures of our students. We welcome you to call or to visit our school at any time and encourage you to become involved in making a difference in the life of a child.
