International Program

International Program

Seton Catholic has a long-running tradition as a resident school for International Students. Over the years, our resident students have come from a wide variety of foreign countries and from different states in the union. The presence of these students gives an added dimension to the educational and cultural fabric of Seton Catholic. The International Students are fully integrated in the academic and social life of the school. These students are encouraged to participate not only academically, but also in social and athletic activities available to all students. Often our International Students serve as leaders on teams and in clubs and organizations. Additionally, Seton Catholic employs a full-time Director of International Students. The Director is a liaison between students, natural families abroad, international agents, host families, and faculty. The Director is available to help students with questions or difficulties that they may be experiencing. The International Office at Seton is provides a comfortable home environment for International Students, complete with walls covered in photographs of past and current international students. http://www.setoncatholic.net/images/Pdf%20Files/International%20Program/ForeignStudentHostFamilyHandbook.pdf
