The philosophy at Holy Angels Catholic Academy is simple: The academy is a place where inquisitive minds grow and faith is nurtured. The program follows guidelines set by New York State and the Diocese of Brooklyn.
Students’ creativity will be unleashed and inspired through an appreciation of the arts, music and dance. Students in grades five through seven will be participating in dance classes through Ballroom Basix, an established program which teaches good manners, patience and tolerance, along with dance.
Students in grades four, six and eight will be exposed to the basics of creative drama through Stages on the Sound Arts Residency Program. Students are also fortunate enough to enjoy after-school clubs, such as band, glee club, board games, student council, American Sign Language and the ever-popular LEGO Club. At Holy Angels the learning and fun go well beyond the 3 p.m. dismissal bell.
The physical plant boasts two gymnasiums, an auditorium with a stage, a beautifully designed, air-conditioned cafeteria, school yard and an early childhood motor skills center.
Holy Angels Catholic Academy is the future of Catholic school education and the academy prides itself on being the forerunner in the Bay Ridge area. The academy offers a full-day nursery and pre- kindergarten program. Students in these grades have the opportunity to visit the early childhood motor skills center on a regular basis.
The academy boasts a technology center with 27 computers, an iPad cart and SMART Boards in every classrooms. Teachers and students are provided with state-of-the-art technology and embrace the changes that will help students achieve success in elementary school and beyond.
