Our Catholic Identity

  • pic Within a Catholic faith community, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School emphasizes each child as a unique reflection of God’s goodness.  Religious education is important to us and is taught in every classroom each day.  All religion textbooks and materials are approved by the Archdiocese of New Orleans, and teachers provide lessons that are engaging and guide the students to explore our Catholic faith. Our excellent academic curriculum encourages the development of each individual’s God-given gifts.  We provide the students a variety of extra-curricular activities, which enriches the learning environment and teaches them responsibility. As a Catholic school we strive to develop a sense of self-worth and independence in students while encouraging service to others. 

    We nurture the spiritual, moral, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth of all students.  This educational environment provides a strong foundation for the future. We believe it is important to manifest Christ throughout our school.  Below are some activities that enhance our Religious Education Program.
