THE ELIZABETH SETON MONTESSORI SCHOOL was founded in 1970 under the auspices of the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill, Greensburg, Pennsylvania to provide an alternative philosophy of education to families with young children residing in the area. For the first twelve years of its existence, the school was located on Mt. Thor Road, Greensburg, Pennsylvania in a facility owned and operated by the Congregation. In August, 1982, when these facilities were no longer available to the school due to a reorganization of building space, The Elizabeth Seton Montessori School relocated to the East High Acre section of Greensburg. The schools legal status changed in September, 1986 when it incorporated as a Not-for-Profit corporation and became known as The Elizabeth Seton Montessori School of Westmoreland County, Inc. Its mission: to engage in providing preschool educational services to children, ages 3 through 6, based upon the Montessori Philosophy of Education. When the corporation purchased a track of land and renovated an existing building on Old Route 30 in Greensburg in July, 1987, the school once again relocated to its new facilities.
