Seton Teaching Fellows

Loving and evangelizing each person before us, with the heart, mind, and spirit of Christ the Teacher.

Seton Teaching Fellows is a one or two-year postgraduate mission opportunity that brings the living Gospel and the beauty of the Catholic faith to children and families in underserved communities. Fellows rely on both time-tested and innovative methods that help the children and families they serve, as well as their peers, to evangelize with the love of Christ the Teacher. At the same time, they participate in their own holistic formation by accompanying, developing, and challenging each other, striving to serve with the mind, heart, and spirit of Christ the Teacher.

"And so, worshiping everywhere by their holy actions, the laity consecrate the world itself to God, everywhere offering worship by the holiness of their lives." -
-CCC 898-902

“I’ve been able to experience the true meaning of the Proverb, ‘As iron is sharpened by iron; one person sharpens another.’ Living in community has allowed me to grow deeper in my faith, learn from others, and bring others to know and love Jesus Christ.”
– Connor, 6th cohort

Buckle up and get ready for probably the most exhilarating ride.”

Seton Teaching Fellows was founded to meet the need for vibrantly Catholic evangelists to provide an excellent education and faithful catechesis in communities that lack traditional access to it. In our New York and Texas schools, STF partners with El Camino, an extended-day faith and enrichment program. In our Ohio school network, Fellows utilize the El Camino Catechesis curriculum as a Catholic theology block. 

Since 2013, Fellows have witnessed Christ the Teacher through their service at Seton Schools. Fellows have a beautiful impact on urban schools by providing a rigorous, virtue-based, and holistic education that offers catechesis opportunities. Fellows are also tangible witnesses to Christ the Teacher through communal living, a simple lifestyle, and commitment to formation as His apostles.

Three pillars drive the program: Faith, Education and Community


Fellows grow as apostles of Christ the Teacher through their participation in an integrated lay Catholic life. Through both explicit and implicit formation directed towards this goal, the Fellows themselves grow in conformity to Christ and therefore grow in their ability to bring Him to others through their relationships and service in their apostolate. 


The apostolate of a Fellow is the opportunity to serve as an educator at a Seton network school. Through their service, Fellows learn how to become strong educators by receiving continuous professional development in the supportive learning community of their placement school.

Fellows live in the community of their placement school, alongside the children and families they serve. Grounded in an intentional, faith-based community of mission-driven peers, Fellows learn how to grow in relationality as apostles of Christ the Teacher. Housing and a modest stipend are provided.
