At the core of the The Catholic School Region of Staten Island is the biblical passage: “Now you are the Body of Christ and each one of you is a part of it.” (Corinthians 12:27) As a Catholic family we gather together, whether regional, parish or private school.
The Staten Island region is exceedingly proud to report that their elementary school students outperformed both New York City and New York State schools in ELA and math in 2017–18. Much of our success can be attributed to our dedicated principals, teachers, and staff who recognize that a faith?based education, where Christ is the center of our teachings, is our most important lesson for students.
With the Staten Island region’s improvements in test scores, focus on professional development and support, and attention to innovative technology, we have seen an increase in Pre-K 3 and Kindergarten enrollment in many of our schools.
Technology in the classroom continues stronger than ever in our region. Our blended learning program has expanded with ChromeBooks and iPads in the classroom in many of our schools from Kindergarten through 8th grade. The Seamless Online Learning Experience (SOLE) program, which began five years ago, utilizes iPad and Blackboard technologies, and continues to expose our 6–8th graders to top-quality professors and student mentors. Additionally, our students participated in the annual robotics competition, which further reinforces our commitment to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs throughout our schools.
The Catholic School Region of Staten Island is a community of learners and worshipers. We view our students as sacred spiritual beings, as we continue to provide them with a religious and academically excellent education.
