Back to School 2014 – Queen of the Rosary Academy Thrives in New Location

Last year, Queen of the Rosary Catholic Academy moved into its new campus: the site of the former St. Nicholas Commercial H.S. in Williamsburg.

Looking ahead to the coming school year, the academy is proud of its new academic and enrichment programs, including an Arts in Residency program, an Italian language and culture program for the third grade and continued use of the Renzulli learning method that creates personalized learning plans for individual students.

The new campus is a well-configured space with large classrooms that easily accommodate the current student body and has ample room for the academy’s anticipated growth. The Common Core standards drive all aspects of the academic curriculum.

The new campus features: a library/media center; a state-of-the-art technology infrastructure that supports both wired and wireless devices in all classrooms, with bandwidth that supports concurrent video streaming in all areas of the building; a cafeteria; a reconfigured courtyard; and a new security system to protect the campus while maintaining a comfortable learning environment.

Queen of the Rosary students receive competitive scores on standardized tests, and the academy takes great pride in successfully preparing its students for the academic demands of high school.

Eighth graders at the academy are accepted into the top Catholic high schools including Milton Academy, Regis, Dominican Academy, The Mary Louis Academy, Xavier and Notre Dame.

Scholarships totaling nearly $200,000 have recently been awarded to students to enable them to attend Catholic high schools. Graduates also earn admission to the top public high schools, such as Brooklyn Tech.
