The school code for the online application is 700 and the password is cea700. Once you enter the online application the Seton School Code is 703.

Seton Scholarships

Applicants may also apply for specific scholarships available to Seton Catholic students. To be considered for these scholarships, please print and submit the Seton Scholarship Application. You will also need a letter of recommendation from someone who knows your family and your children. To make it easier for the person writing the letter, give them at least 2 weeks prior to the scholarship deadline and provide a recommended outline of the letter.

The financial needs of our families exceed our financial aid resources. Therefore, awards may not completely cover tuition payments for a family. It is expected that families make some level of payments towards their tuition balance.

Families can also earn cash toward their tuition by purchasing SCRIP.

Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) Program Expansion

The Diocese of Phoenix Catholic Schools Office and the Arizona Catholic Conference has teamed up to provide a short webinar to help families understand the new Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) program.  A group of experts on ESA and state tuition tax credits (STO) have been assembled to review what an ESA is, what the new ESA legislation entails, cautionary notes about the new legislation, and several areas of consideration when choosing to accept an ESA versus an STO scholarship.  We pray that this webinar is helpful to families considering the ESA program.  Once the September 24 deadline passes and we know if the new ESA legislation takes effect, your school and the Catholic Schools Office will provide additional information helpful to families. 
Here is the link to a prerecorded webinar with more information.
Expansión del Programa ESA

La Oficina de Escuelas Católicas de la Diócesis de Phoenix y la Conferencia Católica de Arizona se han unido para ofrecer un breve seminario web para ayudar a las familias a comprender el nuevo programa Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA). Se ha reunido un grupo de expertos en ESA y créditos fiscales estatales para la matrícula (STO) para revisar qué es un ESA, qué implica la nueva legislación de ESA, notas de advertencia sobre la nueva legislación y varias áreas a considerar al elegir aceptar un ESA versus una beca STO. Oramos para que este seminario web sea útil para las familias que están considerando el programa ESA. Una vez que pase la fecha límite del 24 de septiembre y sepamos si la nueva legislación de la ESA entra en vigencia, su escuela y la Oficina de Escuelas Católicas brindarán información adicional útil para las familias.
