Elizabeth Seton Academy is a Catholic, independent, urban girls' school that provides a nurturing community for learners.
Elizabeth Seton Academy is a college preparatory school for girls, located in the Lower Mills section of
Dorchester. We are fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Elizabeth Seton Academy is the only Catholic girls school in Boston.
At Elizabeth Seton Academy, each student is an important part of a community whose spirit accompanies every phase of student life, whether it is athletics, cultural and social events, or daily schoolwork. This spirit of community is a feeling of loyalty to our school that promotes an atmosphere of respect and cooperation that is essential to the learning process. Each student contributes her own unique talents and gifts to this community and enriches the school spirit at ESA. The spirit serves as a common bond –a feeling of belonging- that will remain with each student throughout the years.
Meghan and Katherine are juniors at ESA. This summer, they travelled to Bogota, Colombia, with Katherine’s family. “We took a two week vacation and I got the amazing opportunity to bring one of my best friends with me,” said Katherine.
While in Colombia they traveled to different cities, tried delicious foods, and went swimming in thermal pools whose water comes straight from the mountains. “Out of all the things we did,” said Meghan, “my favorite was the trip up to the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira.” The tour brought them 200 meters below the ground in to an old salt mine.
Katherine said she “(was) very grateful to have been able to show her (Meghan) this wonderful place.” Meghan hopes to bring Katherine to Ireland some day to meet Meghan’s family and to “see another country just like she showed me.”- LEARN MORE
