St. Joseph by-the-Sea High School is a private Catholic school which exists to afford young men and women the opportunity to come to appreciate that every person has been created by God in His image and likeness, was redeemed by Christ, and is destined to become one with God.
Here, education is the deliberate effort of the administration, faculty, and parents to assist our young people in the development of their spiritual, moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic potential through instruction, discipline and example.
We offer, therefore, an education rooted in Gospel values.
We expect students to develop an awareness and sensitivity for these values and for the basic principles of American democracy by practicing them in their lives.
Our ultimate goal is to help develop responsible persons who will use their virtues and talents in making the world a better place.
In cooperation with the home, the church, and the state, we communicate knowledge, truth, and a sense of justice in order to give students the ability to exercise responsible choices in their lives.

School Notes:

All students take a college preparatory course, with an advanced "honors" track for more advanced students. All students must take four years of Science, Math, English, History, and Religion and complete a three year foreign language sequence. All students receive a Regents diploma "with advanced designation" (that is, students are expected to pass with at least 65 percent the New York State exams in English, Math A, Living Environment, Global Studies and U.S. History necessary for a Regents-endorsed diploma, plus Math B, Chemistry, and Italian or Spanish required for the "advanced" endorsement; students also take a third science Regents exam in Earth Science or Physics, placing them even above the advanced designation). Students in honors take three years of Latin culminating in the Latin Regents and earn six credits in Latin From St. John's University. Students can earn up to 60 college credits from SUNY Albany, St. John's University, and Iona College in their junior and senior years. In addition to the above courses and several other requirements, students are required to take four years of Catholic Studies (Introduction to the Creed and Sacraments; Sacred Scipture; Church History; Moral Theology) is closed and pass a Catholic Competency Examination. There are two full time priests on staff and two visiting priests who teach Religion.

To whom it may concern, My daughter Ashley Baggs will be attending St. Joseph by the SEA in September I was wondering how I can go about her getting a scholarship. I was reading in the Staten Island Advance about this program called The "Children''s Scholarship Partnership Regionalization Awards" is this available to her?
