Affordable Seton Homeschool Curriculum

Michigan home educator highly recommends Seton homeschool curriculum because it is affordable and offers a wide range of support services. Read her testimonial...


I have been homeschooling for several years and I love Seton Educational Media and Seton Home Study School. They have a wide variety of services ranging from a full-color catalog to purchase educational materials, testing, etc. to a full-enrollment home study school for those desiring lessons plans, full curriculum, support services, and access to teachers and counselors. They are faith-based and offer some of the lowest prices on materials that I have found.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience using Seton homeschool curriculum with others, Kerry. I appreciate it! Blessings, Heather :)

Seton Homeschool Curriculum Review

by Michelle

Learn more about Seton homeschool curriculum from a busy Michigan homeschooling mom of nine! Read her review...

I am a mother of 8 boys & 1 girl. I've been schooling at home for 12 years. I researched many programs before going with Seton for K-8. The core curriculum books that I continue to use are Modern Curriculum Press Math K-F. MCP was easy for my children to follow and progress quickly through. Their level of math compared to private & public school cousins in the same grade, (which I do admit to checking on with relatives early on), was well above their peers.

Seton English workbooks are all I used and they are outstanding. The best score on national ACT English portion after using Seton...30! Phonics was not challenging enough, so I went outside Seton. Wordly Wise Vocabulary was thorough and held their interest. My one big complaint with Seton was a total lack in science. They did rectify that this year, but I have already found an exceptional program that I will review later.

Michelle,
Thanks so much for taking the time to review Seton homeschool curriculum; your thoughts are appreciated and helpful. Yes, please return to share about the science curriculum you are using this year! Blessings, Heather :)

Seton Homeschool Curriculum Benefits

by Kathleen Sayong
(Seaside Heights, NJ)

Does your child have a life-threatening illness? Learn some wonderful benefits of homeschooling and why this mom of four chose Seton homeschool curriculum for her family...

I have three of my four children, in a home study program; the program we are registered with is called, Seton Home Study.

Seton is fantastic, as they offer the chance for a better education, with a full curriculum. Seton home study program offers the chance to bond with your children, while giving them the one-on-one attention they do not receive in most school settings today, along with the religious education that many of us want for our children!

Seton homeschool curriculum provides step-by-step guides to all subjects they need in school: Art, Phonics, Reading, History, Math, Vocabulary, Spelling, Science just to name a few. They are an accredited Catholic School. Seton is costly, although they do offer payment plans. However, it is less expensive than private schools but you get the same education! I have been teaching my oldest since kindergarten, and she is now in the 7th grade. I now also teach my other two daughters, who are in second grade and pre-K.

It is also great for families going through illnesses! Our youngest who is in Pre-K was diagnosed with Leukemia in October of 2011. We are in clinics and hospitals a lot. It is very hard to have your children miss so much school, and not know when they will be back in class! With homeschooling you take it with you. Plus, we also dealt with bullying; it is hard for kids to learn when they are in fear!

I highly recommend homeschooling, and Seton homeschool curriculum, if you want both a complete education with religion! It is a great way to bond, and learn together! May God Bless all of you homeschooling families with great success with your academic and family education!

Peace Be With You,
Kathleen Sayong

Kathleen,
Thanks so much for the wonderful and informative Seton homeschool curriculum review; your thoughts are appreciated. I love that you included some great benefits to homeschooling! I'm sorry to hear about your young daughter's struggle with leukemia. Our friends went through the same thing and are now homeschooling their daughter since she missed so much school. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to help other homeschooling parents learn more about Seton Home Study AND for your encouraging words. Wishing you much success as well! Blessings, Heather :)

Strong skills, horrid content NEW
by: Anonymous

It's true that the Seton curriculum is easy to follow, straight-forward, and teaches strong classical skills. We used it this spring in the wake of COVID-19.

However, the content is awful. It's not any kind of Catholicism or Christianity that I'm familiar with as it teaches violence and exclusion. There is also zero joy or humor.Instead, it promotes a white, male military, fear-based agenda. People of Color are not mentioned except as being poor and needing saving. Women are not mentioned except as mothers or saints.

Examples: in the 5th grade History textbook on World War 2, the Holocaust is not mentioned at all. War battles, yes, but nothing about the Holocaust. In the 1960s section, the Civil Rights Movement is not mentioned. Neither is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Or the American Indian Movement. Or the Women's Movement. This omission is glaring.

Also, in the Reading Thinking Skills book, the main story follows a young girl who is first bullied for crying because she was frightened (called a "tantrum"), then locked in the cellar by her supposedly loving father. What horrific messages to send to young girls who are already at a vulnerable time in their development!

The parent handbook explicitly is anti-LGBTQ. It is decidedly rooted in some fantasy world, where the women are submissive to the men. My husband threw the book in the garbage after he read it. I fished it out, ripped off the cover, and was about to throw it away, but instead decided to keep it in case someone needs proof of how horrible this content is.

Math and Science were surprisingly rigorous, engaging, and respectful. Though it is kind of hard to mess up fractions.... Diagramming taught structure, phonics was spot on. The sentences had zero humor and were heavily religious to the point that our kiddo decided to watch Monty Python films as a stress reliever.

Bottom line: stay away. There has got to be better classical curricula out there. 2 stars for the actual skills; zero for the violence. I wish someone had told us, so I am telling you.
