El Camino Curriculum Designer

About Seton: Co-founded in 2009 by KIPP Foundation pioneer Scott W. Hamilton and Teach for America alumna Stephanie Saroki de García, Seton was launched to give every parent, regardless of background, an opportunity to choose an academically excellent and vibrantly Catholic education for their child. As a national non-profit, Seton partners with (arch)dioceses and others across the country to strategically infuse creativity, innovation, and talented leadership to reverse the widespread decline of urban Catholic schooling. With an entrepreneurial spirit, Seton bridges the best of Catholic education’s rich tradition with new possibilities, and has pioneered new, “break-the-mold” approaches to achieving the academic, character, social justice and religious goals of Catholic education. Seton currently serves nearly 5,000 educationally disadvantaged children across 17 schools and 10 cities nationwide, achieving results that match or surpass the nation’s most acclaimed high-poverty schools.
