Seneca Academy seeks to admit a diverse population of students who are able to meet the academic and social expectations of the school. Seneca Academy is nondenominational and does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, gender, race, religion, politics, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status in the admission of children. We welcome the opportunity to communicate with parents about whether our school is a “good match” for their children.
