Dear Friends of Seton Catholic School:  

For 40 years, Seton Catholic School has proudly served the Illinois Quad Cities in forming students to become productive Catholic adults. Our teachers challenge our students academically and encourage them to reach their potential in a disciplined and supportive environment. Many of our alumni command prestigious careers in fields such as medicine, technology, business, science and education, and they see the world through a lens of charity, faith and service.

I am proud of the difference Seton Catholic School makes and assure you that we are working diligently to provide a foundation of excellence in education for future generations.

We have labored earnestly over the years to maintain our facilities and upgrade our classroom resources, but we have pressing needs that require immediate attention, and your help is needed.

This website describes the facility improvements and educational enhancements that we need today, so that we can continue to prepare and form the leaders of tomorrow. I encourage you to look through this website to learn how you can help. Then, please prayerfully consider a pledge and the positive effect you will have in keeping Seton Catholic School strong, as the foundation of our community and the hope of our future. Together, we can do this.

Gratefully yours,

Jane Barrett
Principal, Seton Catholic School
