St. Andrew-St. Elizabeth Ann Seton (SASEAS) is a preschool through eighth grade Catholic school located in Milford, Ohio. This "Passionately Catholic and Academically Excellent" school challenges each student to live the motto: "I will serve joyfully, lead confidently, and inspire others through my faith in Jesus." School families, students, staff, and stakeholders appreciate the strong partnership that must exist between home, school, and church for children to grow into faith-filled, confident, skilled leaders for our country's future. Today, SASEAS serves nearly 400 students from 250 families.
SASEAS takes pride in ensuring a passionately Catholic experience. The school is currently focused on a theme of missionary discipleship. Weekly Mass, daily prayer, rosaries, eucharistic adoration, reconciliation, lectio divina scripture study, liturgical music instruction, prayer journals, church pilgrimages, and vocations days are an important part of the student experience. Community outreach builds servant leaders. The annual student-led Adopt-a-Family program provides ten families and over thirty children with Christmas presents.
Academic excellence is a hallmark of SASEAS students. In addition to the core curriculum, students attend classes in Spanish, art, music, physical education, library, and technology. In 2017, one-third of the eighth grade students scored above the 90th percentile on the High School Placement Test, and the group composite bested the national average by 28 percentage points. In the quest for continuous improvement, the school has implemented new math, science, and social studies programs in the past three years. Students are encouraged to think critically, practice problem-solving skills, and become lifelong learners.
