Resurrection Ascension Catholic Academy

Educating Children for Over 75 Years

Resurrection Ascension Catholic Academy in Rego Park has been educating children for over 75 years. Its motto: “Rise…Aspire…Challenge…Achieve,” exemplifies the high expectations and belief in the abilities and talents of our students. Its diverse student population represents over 50 different countries. It provides a well-rounded academic education, rooted in the Gospel message of Jesus.

A Resurrection Ascension education provides the foundation for future success. The Class of 2017 received over $230,000 in scholarship money and students were accepted into the finest Catholic and public high schools in the city.

The Class of 2013 graduated from high school last year. Among them were two valedictorians and one salutatorian. These graduates are now attending Brown University, Tufts University and the New York Institute for Technology.

In addition to an outstanding academic education, Resurrection Ascension students are given the opportunity to explore their talents in the arts. Third graders are introduced to the violin through a 15-week program through Midori & Friends.

Fourth and fifth graders explore the world of ballroom dancing through a 20-week course from Dancing Classrooms. Stages on the Sound provides fourth, sixth and eighth graders an experience that includes film making, playwriting and Shakespeare. Each student from pre-kindergarten through grade eight attends weekly art and music classes.

Access to technology is a hallmark of the academy. Sixth, seventh and eighth graders participate in a 1:1 Chromebook program that allows students to utilize this technology both in school and at home. Utilizing Google Classroom allows students to collaborate while in their own homes. Feedback from teachers is immediate. Primary-grade students have access to iPads, and use them in a group setting. A weekly computer class rounds out the program.

The basis of all the academy does is a love of God and dedication to service. Students learn to give of their time and talent to improve the lives of others through food drives, fundraisers and in-school service. For school tour, call 718-426-4963.
