Seton Catholic has a long tradition as a resident school for International Students. For more than one hundred years, beginning as Mount Assumption Institute in 1904, we have welcomed resident students from many foreign countries and U.S. states. The presence of these students gives an added dimension to the educational and cultural fabric of Seton Catholic.
The faculty and staff of Seton Catholic provide an excellent learning environment, and Seton students are prepared for exciting opportunities in higher education. Our full-time Director of International Students serves as a liaison between students, natural families abroad, international agents, host families, and faculty. The Director is available to help students with any questions or difficulties that they may be experiencing. The International Office at Seton provides a comfortable home environment for International Students, complete with walls covered in photographs of past and current International Students.
International Students are fully integrated in the academic and social life of our school. They are encouraged to participate, not only academically, but also in the many social and athletic activities available to all students. Often our International Students serve as leaders on sports teams and in clubs and organizations.
Our location in the Lake Champlain Valley, and in the foothills of the Green Mountains and the vast Adirondack wilderness, provides a wealth of opportunities for outdoor activities in every season.
Seton Catholic works with several partnering agencies to guarantee the best possible experience for every International Student.
