Blended Learning Initiative

There are two big and seemingly unrelated trends in education. The first is hundreds of urban Catholic schools disappearing and leaving fewer good educational options for traditionally underserved children. The second is that technology—cheaper computer hardware and personalized software—is starting to change the way students learn. Rather than simply let these two unconnected trends continue independently, one can be harnessed to reverse the other. Urban Catholic schools have a long tradition of providing personalized attention to the poor, and now technology can be used to both build on that tradition and help these schools thrive.

For this to work, the use of technology needs to be robust. To be worth doing, it must also be done in the classically Catholic way that prioritizes relationships and character development just as much as academic achievement. Seton launched its signature Blended Learning Initiative to make this connection happen—to show what is possible by helping Catholic schools transform into cutting-edge learning centers that help students build knowledge, good character, and faith in an economically sustainable way.
