Capital Campaign


The Right Here, Right Now Campaign

The Right Here, Right Now Campaign is a $20 million comprehensive capital campaign to build and maintain a 44,000 sq ft school campus in its first phase. Our new home is housed on 12 acres, with a central Vancouver location (88th Street off of Padden Parkway near Costco) that will allow for future enrollment growth and adequate athletic facilities.  To date, we have blessed to have raised $20.2 million towards our $20 million goal.

Seton Catholic implemented a brand new 1:1 iPad device program across the entire school. Instead of textbooks, the iPad is the most common form of content delivery in the classroom using ebooks, web resources, references and applications pushed out by the teacher.

The STEM Classrooms serve both existing AP courses (Physics, Calculus, Chemistry, etc.) as well as specific STEM courses that integrate knowledge, project-learning and a team approach to solving real-world problems.
