Program of Studies
Seton LaSalle Catholic High School, as a Catholic institution,
recognizes its dual mission to promote spiritual development
and academic excellence. The academic program at Seton
LaSalle is designed to help the students develop as Christian
men and women intellectually and spiritually, and to provide
motivation and preparation for a lifetime of study and work.
As a school community, we accept the great diversity of
intellectual ability within our student body. We encourage our
students to strive to their highest level of achievement.

Our students take pride in their academic success and are driven by a rigorous curriculum. Courses are college preparatory in content based upon these levels: general, academic (AC) and honors (HN), and Advanced Placement (AP). We are proud to offer 29 Honors courses and 19 AP courses encompassing Art, Music, Math, Science, Social Studies, and English. Each student is issued a Chromebook for school use and collaborative learning.

As described by the U.S. Department of Education, “In a world that’s becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, it’s more important than ever for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These are the types of skills that students learn by studying science, technology, engineering, and math—subjects collectively known as STEM.” However, what would an automobile look like without an artist's conceptual rendering? What would a virtual world be without artistic influence to grow and stimulate our imaginations? How does Catholic morality inform cyber privacy, bioengineering and artificial intelligence?
At Seton LaSalle, we believe important questions such as these should be explored and incorporated into education. Art and Religion are incorporated into classes and clubs to foster artistic expression and moral reasoning to complement their increasing proficiency in science, technology, engineering, and math. Utilizing a STEM focused, STREAM influenced approach allows our students to develop skills to be the future leaders of our global communities.
Seton LaSalle High School is accredited by the Commission on Secondary Schools of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh.
