The greatest benefit of homeschooling is being able to help each child individually
and give them the time they need to develop their God-given talents.

We chose Seton for its deeply Catholic teachings, seen consistently through their books
and the support system that Seton has developed so well.

We love the flexibility that Seton provides for each student and the family.

What inspired us to begin homeschooling was the testimony of other families.

I choose Seton Home Study School to be sure my children would receive an academically rigorous and fully Catholic education at home.

The greatest benefit of homeschooling has been having the flexibility to balance school with other enriching activities and the
peace of mind that my children are receiving a superior education and thorough formation in the Catholic faith.

Meeting other Seton families was also a reason!

I love the freedom that homeschooling gives us to use the style of learning that best fits my kids.

Homeschooling also helps them become more independent with their work while allowing me to be there for them when needed.
They also can do more activities after finishing their school work.

Chicago, Illinois – The Salazar Family | May- June 2021


We love that all of the classes, even math, are Christ-centered!

The COVID pandemic made it a simple choice to begin homeschooling since schools, including Joey’s parochial school, were closed to in-person learning.

We love that all of the classes, even math, are Christ-centered. The books are beautiful works of love and devotion,
making Seton the clear choice to a sound Catholic education.

Seton makes homeschooling a treat! Our kids love it and it is just amazing!

We always wanted to homeschool because we like having our kids learn the Catholic faith through school. We chose Seton because it puts great moral materials in its courses and just makes it all really fun! Our kids love Seton because it helps make them so creative. It also helps them go the extra length to get things done and to find out what they want to do with their life.

We love the ability that we can have a fantastic and rigorous curriculum where ever we might be sent to next.

To Have the Freedom and Flexibility to Travel

I wanted my daughters to receive a Catholic education but could not afford to send them to Catholic School; also, with my older parents living in another country, I wanted the freedom and flexibility to travel there in case of an emergency, without it being an educational setback for my children.– The Edwards Family | March – April 2020

To Provide a Healthy School Environment

We began homeschooling because the public school environment was not healthy for our oldest son. I love that my kids and I can attend daily Mass, and I can provide them with a Catholic education and teach them Catholic values. I also love that we are able to spend more time together, travel, and enjoy outdoor activities. – The Haynes Family | January – February 2020


To Be With My Children and Teach Them Daily

I never pictured myself as a homeschooling mother, but during the year that I spent discerning between homeschooling and public school, I felt the Lord put the desire in my heart to homeschool and be with my children during the day. In the end, I had more peace with the idea of homeschooling than public school and answered the call of what I feel ultimately fulfills my vocation as a mother – to be with my children and teach them daily.  – The Velasquez Family | November – December 2019

To Emphasize Family Unity Amidst the Challenges of Military Life

Seton has truly blessed our family.  – The Sibal Family | October 2019 online Seton Magazine

To Give Our Children One-on-One Attention

We homeschool because my husband is a public school teacher. He knows kids learn better with one-on-one instruction and nothing provides that more than homeschooling. We chose Seton because of the structure. I was nervous to begin the journey and there is no guesswork with Seton. They give me what we need and I know my children are receiving a quality Catholic education.  – The Nelson Family | September – October 2019

To Focus on Real Learning

We homeschool so that my SPD son can focus on real learning and not just how to manage his symptoms.

We also love that our children’s physical and mental well-being is improved from working in natural light and fresh air. In fact, our entire State has become their classroom, filled with museums, parks, and travel. – Elizabeth Meyer |March-April 2019

To Develop a Love for Learning

A lot of people ask: why do we homeschool? Is it the academics? Faith? Values? Safety? Yes, it is all of these, but most importantly, it is teaching our children “how” to learn and to develop a love for it. The children are safe and secure…which leads to confidence and an eagerness to learn. –  Jennifer Bravata | January-February 2019

To Keep God in Our School

When our youngest, Cash, attended kindergarten at a public school, he struggled with the idea of not sharing what he knew about God. One time he came home and asked, “Why can’t I talk about Advent in school, Mommy?”

What I love most about homeschooling is the opportunity to teach Cash about God along with all of the other subjects. – Veronica Wilson | November-December 2018

To Keep Jesus at the Center of Our Lives 

I was homeschooled growing up, and I want to pass this treasured experience to my children.

Growing up, we moved at our own pace, went to daily Mass, and learned to maintain a household full of small children. We learned to be flexible and adaptable all the while finding joy. We also had a pajama day! Most of all, Jesus and His Catholic Church were at the center of our lives.  – Carissa Braun | July-August, 2018

To Trust in God’s Schedule

Last week my four-year-old daughter asked me, “Mom, can you teach me how to read?” I smiled and said, “Yes.” I know I can because He will help me. Maybe she’ll learn quickly, maybe it’ll be a long arduous struggle over the years. It doesn’t matter. She’ll learn. And she’ll learn on God’s schedule, not mine. His is the best schedule to ensure our path to heaven. – Rebekah Morse | May-June, 2018

For the High-Quality Education

I am a Seton graduate, and my daughter Kristen continues our Seton legacy! We love the high-quality education, flexibility, efficiency, accreditation, and Catholic identity that Seton provides. On a recent road trip, we stopped by the Seton office for a tour and had the honor of meeting Dr. Clark. – Nicole Early | April 2018
