At Seton, we believe that learning should never stop when the final school day bell rings. Many of our students participate in co-curriculars after school that challenge and stretch their knowledge, interests, and passion.
These optional activities elevate what our students learn in the classroom and better prepares them for their education; they also provide an opportunity for students to see the direct effect of their learning on the world around them.
Co-curriculars are an integral part to the holistic education of a Seton student. They have numerous benefits, including:
- Stimulating many creative skills in students, including playing, acting, singing, and narrating
- Empowers students to express themselves freely and develop a spirit of healthy competition
- Guides students on how to organize activities, cooperate and collaborate, and builds leadership characteristics
- Provides opportunities for students to develop themselves as individuals and as part of a group
- Motivates students to apply education in their own lives and in the classroom
Seton Catholic Schools offers co-curriculars that excite and challenge our students. Some Seton schools have vibrant drama departments, with musical offerings that encourage students to embrace their own spotlight.
Others encourage students to join Student Council or Peer Mentorship programs, which build leadership skills in the school community.
Still others pride themselves on preparing students for the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. At some Seton Catholic elementary schools STEM programs look like Project Lead the Way and Go Baby Go! The programs are an exciting and beneficial way to get students interested in the STEM growing fields.
Many of our schools partner with community organizations to further develop students’ ability to embrace core curriculum subjects. You will find Seton students participating in programs like those led by the Urban Ecology Center and the Milwaukee Art Museum.
