Best Little School in the Heart of Astoria
Located in the heart of Astoria, Immaculate Conception School serves families with children from toddlers to teens and reflects the diversity of the surrounding community. The school’s mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that facilitates a love of learning as well as a love for God, others and self.
Just the Two of Us, the toddler program for children from 18 to 36 months and their grown-ups, meets for 90 minutes once or twice a week. Three-year-olds can be enrolled in either the morning or full-day nursery program. And there are four full-day Pre-K for All classes with 72 seats available for four year olds. Although priority is given to families already registered at Immaculate Conception School, all are welcome to apply.
In addition to meeting the challenges of the Common Core Learning Standards, teachers are dedicated to ensuring that students develop the higher order thinking skills needed to succeed in the 21st century. Classes are interactive, engaging and challenging. Immaculate Conception School also has instruction in music, art, computer and physical education, and students who qualify are supported by a SETTS teacher and Title I Services.
Other enhancements include Dancing Classrooms to refine social skills and mutual respect, Stages on the Sound Performing Arts to encourage creativity and the Latin and Greek Roots Challenge to develop vocabulary and reading comprehension skills.
A Catholic identity is essential to Immaculate Conception School. Students from kindergarten through eighth grade have religion classes with an age-appropriate curriculum. Daily prayer is important, and there are monthly liturgies including Mass, the Rosary, Stations of the Cross, Benediction and May Crowning of our Blessed Mother, patroness of the school and parish. This is a faith-filled community with so much to offer.
