St. Raymond Academy, founded in 1960, is a small Catholic High School for young women.
It offers a strong college preparatory program along with business electives.
The Academy is committed to guiding students to an appreciation of learning that will enable them not only to realize their God-given potential, but also prepare them to make their unique contribution to society. Accredited by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York, and also by Middle States.
We value an education that fosters the pursuit of truth and broadens our students' horizons. We encourage them to accept and respect the diversities among peoples, to live in harmony with others, and to seek peaceful resolutions to conflicts.
We strive to foster in our students a pride in their womanhood, and seek to provide them with the tools necessary to develop into capable, self-confident adults.

Saint Raymond Academy is a great school! My daughter graduated from there a few years ago and I can't say enough about this school. The teachers are very concerned and the atmosphere is family- like. All students are college ready by graduation and many go to top colleges.

St. Raymond Academy is an excellent all girls Catholic HS. It's one of the best in the Bronx. The students are friendly and nice with each other. The teachers are amazing and the leadership is excellent. You won't regret having your daughter attend this school!
