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, Algebra, Biology, Global Studies and U.S. History necessary for a Regents-endorsed diploma, plus Geometry, Algebra II and Chemistry 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 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 five full time priests on staff.

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?
