Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy

A Spiritual Foundation in Howard Beach

Inspired by the faithfulness of the Blessed Mother, Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy in Howard Beach exists to provide an everlasting spiritual foundation and superior academic background for all of the academy’s students, who in time will strengthen, enlighten and better the community, the Church and the world.

The academy is dedicated to building an atmosphere of love, trust and care among students, parents and staff. The academy shares with the family the threefold mission of the Catholic Church: to teach the Gospel message, to build community in the life of the Church and to provide service to the Church and world.

Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy is actively involved in forming the whole person spiritually, mentally and physically. Students develop a positive life outlook and self-image through the teaching that all people are worthy of respect, have a right to their dignity and are special in God’s eyes.

Through the integration of Catholic religious truths and values within the curriculum, students develop insights into the problems that face individuals and society today. Students acquire skills to address these issues effectively. Through prayer and in conjunction with parents, priests and community, the mission is to instill a love of life, respect for others, an eagerness to learn and a willingness to grow and follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and action.
