School Reviews

St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Academy is a great school. They teach to your mind and your heart and the same time. As a student in the sixth grade, I am apart of the choir. Recently, we sang at a Nursing Home in Coney Island. It''s a great school, if your looking for a school where you would like your child to learn about Jesus and the other main subjects, come on down. Sr. Theresa would give you and your child a personal tour.
