A Major Problem. Modern, progressive education is failing. Test scores are sagging. Illiterates are graduating. Graduates are not prepared for life.
A Better Way. Our children belong to God, and He calls us to raise them for Him and His glory. We must teach them to love Him with all their heart, soul, strength, and mind from the time they get up until they go to bedincluding the hours from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The best way to do this is to give our children a classical and a truly Catholic education.
Sancta Familia Academy is a private school offering a classical and traditionally Catholic curriculum, run by a board of directors comprised of parents and professionals concerned with the proper education of our Catholic youth and faithful to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.
We operate in the state of Florida as a non-profit organization incorporated in 2001. We are a 501 (c)(3) corporation and your donations are tax deductible. SFA is listed in the Florida Department of Education's Private School Directory, is a member of NAPC*IS, and is modeled after Highlands Latin School in Louisville, KY.
We offer a standard 5 day a week program, a part-time attendance cottage school program, co-op classes and an ISP (independent study program) for home educated students in grades pre-k through 12th.
Blessed with a dedicated staff, volunteers, and board of directors, SFA is preparing to begin its sixth year of operation with students attending 1st - 12th grade for the 2006 -
2007 school year. SFA will continue to offer part-time enrollment and co-op classes, as
well as services for homeschooled students in our community.

The Seton Academy provides an authentic Catholic education aiming at forming in the students the virtues "by the integration of culture with faith and of faith with living." (The Catholic School, No. 49, The Sacred Congregation of Catholic Education). The Seton Academy serves as a model for Catholic inclusive education, rooted in the teachings and spirituality of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, our Patron Saint. Our work is inspired and guided by the words found in Marks Gospel: And people were bringing children to him that He might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. (Mark 10:13-14)
At The Seton Academy we seek to open wide our arms and our hearts to assisting and to serving all our students in a caring and inclusive Catholic school community where Gods unconditional love is made known to all. The Seton Academy is dedicated to excellence where the Gospel values are not only taught but also lived in accordance with our Catholic faith. At The Seton Academy all students are valued as individuals and learn together in general education classrooms. Research has proven the benefits of inclusive education for students with and without disabilities and the failure of segregated systems of education.
The good news of the Gospel must reach all Gods children, including those with disabilities. Every child has an incomparable value and dignity. The exclusion and segregation of children and youth with or without disabilities violate the value of their human life and violates their dignity as children of God.
We need to be people of life and work against the conspiracy against life. We cannot tolerate the exclusion and rejection of children and youth with disabilities from our schools in the name of efficiency.
Equally, we, as Catholics, members of the Body of Christ, charged with proclaiming His Good News, cannot accept rejection and segregation of children with disabilities as simply a method of instruction. The lives of children and youth with disabilities are precious and must be embraced! The inclusion of children with disabilities in Catholic schools is consistent with our Catholic faith and with the protection of all human life and the promotion of human dignity. We cannot be pro-life and be against inclusive education. The vision of the Church is inclusive. Jesus reached out to all. Gods Kingdom is inclusive no one is excluded!
