Experience the Difference:
Building Knowledge ~ Developing Confidence ~ Strengthening Skills
Rooted in the Catholic faith and spirit, the community of St. Mark Catholic School welcomes families from the Sheepshead Bay area and surrounding communities. Inspired by the Gospel values and in a Christ-centered environment, we promote student success through challenging programs that meet the diverse learning needs and unique potential of the whole child. We aspire to provide the foundation for our students to become compassionate leaders of the future.
Developing a well-rounded student is the goal of St. Mark School. Academics are based on strong foundations in reading, writing and critical thinking. The social and emotional development of our students is nurtured in a small, caring learning environment. Our dedicated faculty and staff consider the needs of each child in every way and strive to find a way to meet these needs. Respect for religious and multicultural diversity is learned each day as the school community celebrates holidays and learns traditions from around the globe. We also encourage our students to develop an appreciation for giving back to the community. We plan events for various charitable organizations to raise awareness, so the students are able to gain perspective and realize that there are others in need.
The goal for the St. Mark graduate is to continue their education at the high school of their choice. The faculty and staff will prepare the students and assist them with the admission process to either a parochial or public high school. St. Mark students continue on to many parochial schools in Brooklyn and Manhattan and some of the specialized public high schools.
St. Mark School is a faith-based school where living out Christian values is important. The parents of these children value the academic excellence and the respect shown and the higher sense of purpose that is brought to our students. It is with a firm sense of values and faith our children can grow up and go out into the world and truly make a difference.
