Religion

In The Classroom

As a Catholic school, we integrate opportunities for personal faith formation in each academic department and through every faculty and staff member on a day-to-day basis. Seton High School’s Religion Department curriculum promotes the individual growth of all students through the foundational study of scripture, church history, and the good news of Jesus Christ as evidenced through the Gospels.

Seton High School follows the Archdiocese of Cincinnati’s High School Religion Graded Course of Study. Students are encouraged to see themselves as children of God and to utilize their gifts and talents for the greater good.  It is our goal to continually reinforce the importance of practicing one's faith so they are able to make sound, moral judgments in a complicated world. Further, our students are encouraged to live out their faith through the charism of the Sisters of Charity - living simply, humbly and charitably. 

To fulfill diploma requirements, 4 units of credit must be accumulated. Please see our Curriculum Guide for course descriptions.
