Why We're Here
A new way forward after the collapse of urban Catholic education.
A New way forward
Declining enrollment and rising operating costs are the main causes for this extraordinary collapse of urban Catholic education—a character-building, Americanizing, opportunity-equalizing force.
Seton Education Partners is a national effort to strategically infuse creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship, talented leadership, and public dollars to find a new way to nurture children in underserved communities—mind, body and spirit. If you also care about this life-changing mission, please join our community of supporters.
Seton Education Partners is a national, 501(c)3 not-for-profit education organization inspired by the life of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. Seton was founded at the height of the Great Recession in 2009 by KIPP Foundation pioneer Scott W. Hamilton and Teach for America alumna Stephanie Saroki de García. With a focus on results, Seton is committed to ensuring that children in underserved communities develop the knowledge, skills, and character traits necessary to excel academically and pursue lives of meaning and purpose.
Since our founding, Seton has pioneered and grown two school models and three programs in service of our mission. Learn more in What We Do.
