Seneca has an abundance of activities available to its students and is a continuous contender in its conference, the Olympic Conference, in many of its sports programs. The school goes by the moniker the Golden Eagles, which narrowly beat out other contending names, such as the Sacagaweas, Apaches, and the Squantos.

Seneca is the newest of the Lenape Regional High School District's schools, and because of this, it features the most modern facilities. The school's most prevalent of its modern technologies would be its doors. Another improvement Seneca has made upon the other schools in the area is the abundant parking lot spaces. With enough parking spaces for all of the facility and every student who can drive, Seneca has made transportation to school very convenient.

Seneca also holds regular adult night school classes and senior citizens events.

The Seneca High School Golden Eagles participate in the Olympic Conference, which consists of public and private high schools located in Burlington County and Camden County.
