Website Review: Seton Home Study School

A review based on:


Seton Home Study School is the largest and most comprehensive Catholic home schooling program in the United States. Started in response to Catholic parents across the nation searching for an education that offers both Catholicity and academic excellence, Seton provides complete home schooling curriculums for grades K through 12. Seton is also the largest publisher of Catholic academic textbooks and workbooks for children in the United States. It offers parents a way of "teaching under the Magisterium of the Catholic Church."

The site itself is as filled with resources as the program is. It will be useful for Seton users and all homeschoolers in general.
