Jeff Kerscher

Director, Seton Blended Learning Network

Jeff Kerscher is the Director of the Seton Blended Learning Network, which uses technology, creative problem-solving, and nationwide collaboration to substantially improve the academic performance of students and reduce operating costs at urban Catholic schools. Under Jeff’s leadership, the network has grown from a start-up pilot to a thirteen school, seven city network that serves over 3,250 students, 98% of whom are minority and over two-thirds of whom live below the poverty line. During this time, network schools have posted growth on-par with or outpacing that of many high-performing charter networks while simultaneously driving a collective 30% increase in enrollment. Prior to joining Seton, Jeff served as Dean of Students at John Carroll Catholic High School in Fort Pierce, Florida and completed the University of Notre Dame’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) Service Through Teaching program at St. Thomas More Catholic Academy in inner-city Washington, D.C. During ACE, Jeff taught middle school students social studies, religion, and language arts in addition to serving as Summer School Principal. Jeff earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Xavier University and a Master’s degree in Education from the University of Notre Dame.
