Staten Island Academy

Beginning our second century as a co-educational college preparatory school, Staten Island Academy is committed to providing a child-centered education of superior quality.
Enrolling students in Pre-Kindergarten through twelfth grade, our objective is educating the whole child, while fostering intellectual, creative, social and physical development.
Within a collegial campus environment, in small classes, and through extracurricular activities, we encourage our students to participate actively in an educational community that promotes ethical leadership, self-reliance and critical thinking.
Believing in the inherent strengths of a diverse citizenry, we celebrate the cultural differences, individual interests and personal talents of our student body.
