BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — One website is ranking Seton Catholic Central high school as a top 5 private Catholic school in Upstate New York.
The ranking is done by Niche.com, a neighborhood analysis website.
Key factors in the ranking are college readiness, teacher quality and experience, tuition and more.
Seton has a 100% graduation rate and a college acceptance rate, and on top of that they had the highest SAT/ACT score out of all the 50 top schools in Upstate New York listed in Niche data.
School officials say a combination of smaller classes, great teachers, a thriving parental community and a mixture of the faith is what got them this rating.
“We are teaching them beyond that a greater purpose, a greater purpose in their lives and that is one of the thinks I think we are especially known for, our Catholic faith, and too look at what’s best for the common good.” said Dr. Elizabeth Carter the President of the Catholic Schools of Broome County.
Niche.com also ranks Seton #21 among 104 private Catholic schools in New York State.
