We invite prospective parents to explore our UPK, Pre-K, Kindergarten and Grades 1-8 elementary school programs by scheduling a call or in-person visit with any of our schools. A school representative will explain how our classrooms and technology are set up, and review our health and safety measures.

We are pleased to welcome prospective parents who wish to schedule an in-person visit at participating Catholic elementary schools across the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island, plus Central Westchester, Dutchess, Northern Westchester/Putnam, Orange, Rockland and Ulster Counties, at a mutually convenient time. NOTE: due to COVID-19 Safety Protocols, we are unable to host tours during school hours while students and teachers are in the school buildings. Individual tours can be set up between 2:30 and 4:30pm, subject to applicable policies at each school.
Visit one of our schools on Tuesday November 15 during Discover Catholic Schools Week (click on the event listed at right). You can also schedule a phone call or in-person visit with the school at another mutually convenient time.
When you book a call or in-person visit, you’ll speak with a school representative, who will explain how our classrooms and technology are set up; review our health and safety measures; and demonstrate how our approach to individualized instruction has helped us achieve the big gains we’ve made in our Reading & Math Proficiency Scores.
Our schools offer daily in-class instruction and have built a successful track record of remaining open while keeping our students and faculty safe – through proven health, safety and emergency response protocols.
#2: Focus on the Whole Child.
From Pre-K through 12th grade, Catholic schools provide the foundation in faith and academics needed to succeed in high school and beyond. Community service projects, where students help create and deliver support to their local communities, are integral to Catholic school student life.
#3: Learning Momentum Maintained.
Catholic schools offer a more personal learning experience for students, through smaller class sizes. In addition, individualized instruction and regular assessments help students improve their learning – teaching them to build on their strengths to overcome their learning barriers.
#4: Preparation for High School and Life.
Catholic schools offer a faith-based, future-focused curriculum that instills self-discipline and integrates modern technology with traditional classroom instruction. In addition to Math, Religion and English/Language/Arts, our schools offer enhanced classroom technology and STEM programs, robust literacy tools and engaging art programs.
Many schools offer early drop-off and late pick-up to accommodate parents’ schedules. Parents are warmly welcomed to regular parent-teacher meetings, where they can share in their child’s learning and participate in their school community.
#6: Parent Support.
Financial assistance awards cover a significant portion of tuition for qualifying families at participating schools. And, through the ADAPP program, parents and students have free access to counselling and support for issues ranging from pandemic-related stress to mental health.
#7: Academic Achievement
Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, Catholic school students’ performance in Reading and Math has continued to outpace National Performance.
