Pursue Academic Excellence
Based on the foundation and heritage of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, we are an academic community of faith that strives to form the hearts, minds, bodies, and souls of our students in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the living tradition of the Catholic Church.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School creates a nurturing environment where each student is given the opportunity to grow in faith, knowledge, and character within a Catholic community.
Two hundred years ago, Elizabeth Ann Seton founded St. Joseph’s Academy and Free School, the first Catholic School for girls staffed by the Sisters of Charity.
A Catholic convert, and devoted her life to caring for the children of the poor. She is the first native-born U.S. citizen to be canonized and is widely considered the patron saint of Catholic Schools.
Founded in 1999, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is Elk Grove’s only Catholic School. We are a shared ministry of the faith communities of Good Shepherd, St. Joseph, and St. Maria Goretti Parishes.
We believe that each child, in pursuit of his or her best self, gives glory to God. This philosophy is at the heart of our mission to provide children with a well-rounded education and opportunities to develop in mind, body, and spirit.
Students grow and learn within a safe and welcoming environment that fosters academic excellence and spiritual enrichment.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School offers comprehensive curriculum based on our Catholic values and California Common Core standards.
In addition to their core curricular subjects, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton students enjoy dynamic opportunities for enrichment, social engagement, and extracurricular participation.
It is important to remind children that they have the power to shape their own futures through dedication and hard work.
Students choose from a variety of electives including Latin, leadership, art, choir, Academic Decathlon, and band.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School offers students ample opportunities to develop effective study habits, a positive work ethic, and a thirst for knowledge. Traits that sow the seeds of scholarship.

“My son started in public school. He struggled to read and participate in class, but he did great at home. I enrolled him in Kumon like his teacher suggested, and he had hours of homework every night as a 1st grader. He came home crying and miserable every day.
I looked into St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School and there was was one opening in his grade. I knew it was meant to be. On his first day at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, his teacher informed me that he couldn’t see well and needed glasses. This explained his lack of involvement in class at the previous school. He now gets the one-on-one attention he needs, he looks forward to going to school every day, and is still smiling when I pick him up.”
After having a horrible experience in public school myself I decided on private school for my children. I can say that this school is AMAZING! A wonderful, nurturing and supportive environment to be in. We have been here for 4 years now and my son loves it. Teachers are kind, loving and caring. Staff is supportive. Peers have become family and the religious instruction has been wonderful. Can’t imagine going to another school.
AND, the principal has a beautiful heart. She knows EVERY child’s name, she stands outside and greets the children everyday, sets high standard for the children of which she also meets herself, and stands outside in the pouring rain to cross children across the parking lot. God bless the staff and everyone at this school that makes it run so well.
Today my daughter Mea had the interview with St. Francis High School. It was the proudest moment of our life as her parents. The interviewer commented that Mea had composure “observed only in college ready students.” Mea was very proud about the guidance she had received from all her teachers.
The interviewer requested that Mea voice appreciation to all her teachers for molding her into an insightful person. The SFHS staff also voiced how desirable the student EXIT interview process is at SEAS.
As her parents we have no words to explain the gratitude and appreciation we have for the teachers in bringing the best out of her during the last 8-10 years. Thank you.

We love our SEAS kids!
[V]ery impressed with how well distant learning is taught…[Our daughter] said she felt she was very engaged the entire time. [Y]ou are all doing an awesome job ensuring that the distant learners get the attention that they need and are able to participate in class so that they can learn at the same pace as in-class students. Well done and thank you for all of the hard work that everyone put in to make distant learning feel as close to being in a classroom as possible!
[3rd Gr.] is doing a great job handling distance learning and in class learning. It doesn’t look easy, but [our student] is adapting well. Thank you for your guidance.
