About the Program: Seton Teaching Fellows (STF) is an initiative of Seton Education Partners, participating in its mission to serve underprivileged children and give them the opportunity to develop the knowledge, character, and faith necessary to earn a college degree, pursue lives of value and integrity, and become saints.
About Seton: Co-founded in 2009 by KIPP Foundation pioneer Scott W. Hamilton and Teach for America alumna Stephanie Saroki de García, Seton expands opportunities for parents in underserved communities to choose an academically excellent, character rich—and for those who seek it— vibrantly Catholic education for their children. As a national non-profit, Seton partners with (arch)dioceses and others across the country to implement innovative and sustainable new schooling models that bridge the best of Catholic education’s rich tradition with new possibilities. With an entrepreneurial and innovative spirit, much can and should be done, not only to preserve this national treasure but also to build on its foundation for the benefit of thousands of children in America’s most underserved neighborhoods. Seton currently serves nearly 5,000 educationally disadvantaged students across 16 schools and 10 cities nationwide. Across our schools, students are achieving academic growth results in mathematics and reading that match or beat the nation’s most acclaimed urban charter schools.
