Our music curriculum for the early years encourages movement, song, and beginning instrument work. Students learn listening skills, rhythm, and basic music reading skills. Students in grades 3-8 may also join choir or band. Middle School students learn to play tone chimes. There are two annual concerts and students have the opportunity to perform for area festivities.
Beyond the core basics of art, this program includes work on stained glass and etched glass. Students also study art history, the artists, and paintings. We introduce the students to the world of art and teach them how to learn to appreciate it.
Physical education stresses cooperation, sportsmanship and exercise. The primary grade students work on physical activity skills, reinforced with organized games. Middle school students learn and improve advanced skills and incorporate these into games and tournament play.
Our Spanish curriculum is designed for the students not only to learn the language, but to also learn about the different cultures, customs, and holidays through a variety of ways. In addition to instruction, our curriculum includes games, music, bingo and puzzles. These activities help our students gain an appreciation for the Spanish culture. Most of our graduating 8th grade students are able to enter second year Spanish in high school.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton participates in a planning and accreditation process. We are accredited through the Archdiocese of Milwaukee’s OSCYM (Office for Schools, Child, & Youth Ministries) and WRISA (Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation). The standards of the OSCYM reflect the requirements for Catholic schools as stated in the policies, regulations, and statutes of the Wisconsin Catholic Conference of Bishops, the policies and regulations for the OSCYM and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Every year schools submit the Annual Standards for Accreditation form and the Personnel Standards form to the OSCYM for review by the Accreditation Review Board. Every seven years, schools submit documentation for the Accreditation Standards to the OSCYM. A team comprised of principals, teachers, and other qualified personnel, along with a resource staff of the OSCYM, visits the school and reviews the documentation of the Standards. The team also reviews compliance with the WRISA criteria for accreditation.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is fully compliant in meeting Archdiocesan Standards for Accreditation.
