The mission of East Lake Academy is to provide our students with an integral formation to develop them as Christian leaders. The East Lake student should be a young person of integrity and character who commands an appropriate wealth of knowledge of his faith, the humanities, and the sciences. The student should display critical discernment and possess a disposition to service. Our educational program of integral formation consists of three essential elements: teaching, educating and forming.
To teach means to provide the student with the intellectual capabilities, content and skills needed to respond to the demands of today’s society.To educate means to train the student in the habit of intellectual rigor, structured reasoning, and in the appreciation of beauty; it means to cultivate sensitivity, memory, imagination; and finally, to develop the art of communication and the ability to express oneself clearly and elegantl. To form is to foster in each student the foundation of all virtue and integrity, leading the student to become a person for others, with an upright ethical code and sensitivity toward the needs of others. East Lake Academy strives to build the complete person in its students, developing their full potential by teaching the mind, educating the heart and forming the will. We aim to serve society by promoting in our students academic excellence, spiritual growth and personal development, thereby creating future leaders for the Catholic Church and society as a whole.

We serve a diverse population from several counties in Maryland and the District of Columbia. The socioeconomic status of the students attending Elizabeth Seton High School ranges from low income to middle income. Of our students, 50% receive financial assistance and single-parent homes make up 29% of the student body. Special support is given to the financially poor as far as possible. The school provides a challenging college preparatory program for all young women who seek a community that celebrates diversity and creativity, fosters moral, spiritual, academic and physical growth, and promotes the Gospel values through service to others. Seton provides students with a solid academic foundation designed to stimulate intellectual curiosity and a love of learning. Our students are challenged to think critically, to organize their thoughts logically and to express ideas effectively. Our mission gives the student a strong foundation for growth in Christian leadership and service for the future. We are in a unique position, not only to educate young women academically but also to address the needs of our students as they take their place in a culturally diverse society.
The Congregation of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Scranton, Pennsylvania, operates this program. The IHM Sisters work together to meet the educational, healthcare, social and spiritual needs of those whom we serve. Efforts to promotejustice for local immigrants highlightthe need for an ESL program in South Scranton to serve the fast growing Latino population and other immigrant groups living in that area. Experience in the program provided a depth of understanding regarding the challenges faced by learners, cultural differences, and the components of effective language and literacy programs. Feedback from the adult learners indicated consistent progress in the language as well as a sense of belonging and community fostered by the program. Sixty-seven adult learners are currently enrolled in the program, which runs 38 classes or sessions per week.

Earthen Vessels mission is to transform lives. We prevent low-income youth (grades 4-12) from Roxbury and Dorchester, MA, from dropping out of school; systematically strengthening core academic skills, organizational habits, and other life skills; and successfully matriculating 100% of our EVkids seniors in college. We do this by recruiting, training, and mobilizing a motivated volunteer corps of top Catholic university students who provide multi-year, one-on-one after school tutoring and mentoring, supported by professional family and school advocacy, and a life changing summer camp experience. By engaging at-risk youth and university students in multi-year, mutually enriching relationships, we believe our EVkids and their EVcorps tutors will become integral parts of a more socially just, tolerant, and compassionate world.
