Invest in a Catholic education when it makes the most difference.
Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of New York offer a unique combination of academic and spiritual development that helps children of all backgrounds get the best start in life.
Our students learn in an environment where respect, courtesy and service to others are always part of the curriculum. These values enrich not only our students, but also their families, parishes and communities.
We offer a future-focused curriculum that prepares students to lead successful, productive lives. In addition to Math, Religion, English Language Arts (ELA), History and Science, our schools have expanded technology in the classroom and STEM programs. We’ve also introduced robust literacy tools to develop articulate, well-read children, and evolved art programs to stimulate creativity in young minds.
From our last testing period in 2019, our English Language Arts (ELA) scores jumped by 7.3 percent, while our math scores held steady with a slight decline from pre-pandemic levels, demonstrating that the proactive steps we took to keep our schools open and safe made the difference in combating pandemic-induced learning loss. In addition:
Catholic school students outpaced New York City public school students in terms of the percentage of students meeting or exceeding proficiency standards in both Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA).
Over 99% of our high school seniors graduate, and 99% of those grads go on to college or post-secondary education
