School Reviews

I can''t say enough about this hidden treasure on Staten Island! My child has been here since PreK and is currently in the Academy''s Middle School. The Academy is our extended family. Everyone knows you by name and all the students look out for each other, regardless of the grade they are in. Academically, Spiritually, and Socially my child has thrived from day one. Now we just need a High School so we can continue here!!!

If you are looking for a safe school, (with out bullying), high academic standards, that teachers and instills Christian values, this is the school for you. As a parents of a soon to be 4th grader in Sept. I couldn''t be happier, when i drop my son off I have a clear head I know he is well taken care of in EVERY WAY. It''s so refreshing to know they have a handle on every child in this school, everyone knows each others name and is always acknowledged. It''s a ray of educational sunshine on Staten Island
