Dear Seton Families,
There will be no school on Friday, January 18, 2019.
Catholic Schools Week will begin Sunday, January 27. We have a fun-filled week planned! Our theme this year will be “Faith of a Champion”. Please review the Catholic Schools Week Parent Packet for details. Packets will be sent home in Friday Folders on Thursday, January 17.
Bishop’s Tuition Assistance and STAR Foundation applications are now available in the office. The application is also located on the Diocesan website. As in the past, the due date is March 1st for the Erie Catholic high schools and April 15th for all elementary and regional schools. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office. Diocesan website: http://www.eriercd.org/tuition.htm
I encourage everyone to apply regardless of income level. No personal information is shared. All personal information remains private. The school will not see the details of your application. The school (principal) is provided with a list of those who applied and amount awarded. If you have questions, please feel free to call me and I will share with you the process. If you do not qualify for Bishop’s Tuition Assistance and STAR Foundation, you may still qualify for additional scholarships. To be considered for additional scholarships, you must complete the Bishop’s Tuition Assistance and STAR Foundation paperwork. All families should apply.
Exciting news released by Prep and Villa! Cathedral Prep and Villa Maria Academy announced a new scholarship program called the Catholic Elementary Scholarship Program. Beginning with the 8th grade graduating class of 2019, any graduate of a Catholic elementary school in the Diocese of Erie will receive a $3,000 scholarship per year renewable for four years to attend Cathedral Prep or Villa Maria Academy. Thus, the total value of the scholarship is $12,000. For more information, please visit https://www.prep-villa.com/.
God Bless and have a wonderful weekend,
