Tel: (718)360-2510
Grades: 9-12 | 771 students
The goal of our school is to educate, to prepare for the future - these are the goals of our administration, faculty and staff.
In this quest we are united in common bonds: faith in God as expressed in the Roman Catholic tradition, respect for nation, and love - love of knowledge, love of God, love of others and love of self.
We seek to provide spiritual, educational, and social opportunities which coincide with the threefold aim of Catholic education as defined in the Bishops' pastoral, "To Teach as Jesus Did."
