School History

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School was established in 1990 serving students in kindergarten through 3rd grade.  There were 85 students enrolled and the program included the basics in academics, religion and specials in music, art, Spanish and physical education.  The following year prekindergarten, 4th and 5th grades were added with additional participation in extracurricular sports, and academic and fine arts competitions.

With each subsequent year additional classes were added, double tracking was begun, and renovations provided the needed classroom and activity space.  The 1st graduating class completed their elementary education in 1994.  In 1996, a new addition was constructed housing a Library and Computer Lab.  That same year, the Annex was converted into the Middle School.  Double tracking was completed in the fall of 1998. In 2008, a new wing was added that included a gymnasium and weight room, state of the art Science Laboratory, and classrooms for Music, Spanish and Band.  In addition, a teacher workroom was added.  Part of the 1st floor of the new wing is underground and serves as a safe room for our students in the event of a tornado or inclement weather.  

Over the years, the Library has become fully automated.  The Computer Lab is equipped with  classroom set of desktop computers.  Chromebook and iPad carts are available and utilized in different classes during the school day.  All of the classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards, digital projectors, document cameras and portable voice amplifier systems.

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School joined the Catholic Grade School Athletic Association in 1990 and is an ongoing, active member.  Students participate in volleyball, soccer, basketball, archery and spring track meets.  School teams are coached by volunteer parents in grade school and when available non-parent coaches for middle school sports all under the guidance and policies established by the Athletic Commission founded in 1990.

 A band was formed in 1993 with the addition of a jazz band in 2003.  We offer Drama to students in grades 5th through 8th grades with evening performances twice a year.  In 2004, we obtained our charter from the National Junior Honor Society for students in the middle school.  Throughout the year students participate in numerous academic and athletic challenges and frequently make study trips to many points in the area and throughout Oklahoma. Every year we continue to add enrichment opportunities for our students. Full-day Prek4 was added in 2016 and a Prek3 program began in 2018.  Cardinal University, our after school enrichment program, started in the fall of 2017. 

There have been many changes since the school 1st opened its doors years ago.  As the school has grown, its administration and staff have remained dedicated to serving our students and fulfilling the mission statement of the school, “Guided by our Catholic faith, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School serves God and families by spiritually and academically preparing students for lives of holiness and service.”  The school continues to maintain its philosophy to prepare each student as an individual, graced by God, to live a faithful, creative, humane and compassionate life and to contribute to the human community.
