Catholic Schools Week 2015

Changes in Williamsburg

Queen of the Rosary Catholic Academy is making dramatic changes – just like its Williamsburg neighborhood. With a dynamic new principal, Marian Hernandez, the school resides in a fully renovated, former high school building at 11 Catherine Street.

The building is well-configured, with large classrooms that easily accommodate the students. In addition to these new classrooms for each grade, the building includes:

  • Multi-Media Center
  • Wired and wireless connectivity in each classroom
  • A dedicated art room
  • A dedicated science laboratory
  • SMART Boards in every classroom

There are a number of academic programs that further enhance the school – the Superkids reading program for grades kindergarten to second; Stages on the Sound brings performing arts to the middle school students; Spanish is taught to all grades from nursery through eighth grade; all grade levels from nursery through eighth grade receive at least one art class a week by a trained art teacher.

The school’s rigorous academic standards have resulted in high school acceptances over the past few years to Archbishop Molly, Bishop Loughlin, Brooklyn Latin, Brooklyn Tech, Christ the King, Dominican Academy, The Mary Louis Academy, Msgr. McClancy, Notre Dame Academy, Regis, St. Francis Prep, St. John’s Prep, St. Joseph’s, St. Vincent Ferrer, Xavier and many others. High school scholarships totaling over $200,000 have been awarded to students over the past few years.

In addition, a full menu of after school enrichment programs include sports, reading, arts, performing arts and entice a significant portion of the student body to remain after school at least one day a week. The school’s after-school program also allows working parents to let their children remain at school after hours, where they are provided with homework assistance, time to relax and time to interact with students from other grades.

Contact the school for more information, and to reserve a seat for your child for the 2015-2016 school year. Seats are limited, with demand for seats in the school growing as the population of Williamsburg continues to grow.
