The re-admission process for current families opens this week. Below is a letter from The CSBC President introducing the new on-line process that we are utilizing this year. On Thursday Patty Falank will begin to send the enrollment package to all families through email.
The 2017-18 admissions process is now open. This year you will be able to enroll on-line significantly streamlining the process for you. Tomorrow you will be emailed materials explaining the enrollment process on Rediker and the tuition assistance application on Smart Aid.
We are requesting that you complete the entire registration and tuition assistance process by Wednesday, March 15. All applications returned by Wednesday, March 15 will be entered into a drawing for a 50% tuition waiver. There will be two waivers awarded, one elementary (K-6) waiver and one secondary (7-12) waiver.
The integrity of our schools’ instructional plan and the sustainability and safety of our buildings are among our highest priorities. Our Five-Year Strategic Plan details a commitment to invest in both these crucial areas necessitating a moderate increase in tuition for next year. The rates are highlighted on the admission application.
The Catholic Schools offer a rigorous Pre K – 12 academic program. While emphasis is placed on science, math and pre-engineering there is recognition that the liberal arts are critical to a wide-ranging education. Most importantly a cornerstone of our mission is imbedding a philosophy that promotes faith, ethics and justice.
At Seton Catholic Central 16 AP courses are offered enabling students to build a solid foundation for college level studies. The language portfolio includes American Sign Language, Latin, Mandarin and Spanish. The importance of language is reflected in Mandarin and Spanish being offered in grades K-12.
Instruction in the region’s three elementary schools fosters discussion, analysis, problem solving and critical thinking. All of our classrooms utilize technology as a critical instructional tool. Students in grades 3-12 are provided a Chromebook which significantly transforms the way teaching and learning occurs. The future is bright for the Catholic Schools of Broome County.
