The landscape of Catholic education is evolving. The traditional model of one parish supporting one school has changed in Milwaukee. Today, 24 of the 97 Catholic elementary schools in the Archdiocese exist due to mergers of previously independent parish schools. Shifting demographics and escalating school-related costs have encouraged schools and parishes to reconsider how to prepare students academically and spiritually for the challenges of high school.
That’s where Seton Catholic Schools come in.
Seton Catholic Schools was created in November of 2015, as a new initiative of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Under the directive of Archbishop Jerome Listecki, from a Synod Task Force, Seton was charged with re-imagining what Catholic elementary education could look like. What resulted was a transformative plan to merge leadership in education with a thoughtful educational model and the appropriate resources to transform Catholic education in Milwaukee.
