Visit Us


Welcome to Mother Seton School!

Come see that you can afford a school with solid academics and solid values.

We are conveniently located just 25 minutes north of the city of Frederick, with bus service and the most affordable tuition in Frederick and Carroll counties. Our 15-acre campus offers children space to learn and play in a beautiful natural setting. We adjoin the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, who founded in 1810 the pioneering Catholic school that became Mother Seton School.

We’re looking forward to meeting you! Please contact Jennifer Buchheister at 301-447-3165 or to arrange a visit or ask any questions.
