Williamsburg’s Hidden Gem
Queen of the Rosary Catholic Academy is making dramatic changes – just like its Williamsburg neighborhood.
Under the leadership of new principal, James Anthony Daino, the school resides in a fully renovated, former high school building at 11 Catherine Street, featuring:
– a multi-media center
– wired and wireless connectivity
– an art room
– a science laboratory
– SMART Boards
– a cafeteria
– and a morning assembly room
There are a number of academic programs that further enhance the school: SuperKids reading program for the early childhood levels; Spanish is taught to all grades from nursery through eighth grade; grade levels from pre-k through eighth grade receive at least one art class a week by a trained art teacher. Queen of the Rosary uses the programs Learn360 (K-8), BrainPop (5-8), Code.org (K-8) and Mathletics (3-8) to supplement and enhance the individual needs of each child.
The school also offers free Pre-K For All in concert with the city.
The school’s rigorous academic standards have resulted in high school acceptances over the past few years to Brooklyn Latin, Brooklyn Tech, Christ the King Regional H.S., Cristo Rey, Dominican Academy, The Mary Louis Academy, Msgr. McClancy Memorial H.S., Archbishop Molloy, Notre Dame Academy, Regis H.S., Xavier H.S. and many others. High school scholarships totaling over $200,000 have been awarded to students over the past few years.
In addition, a full menu of after-school enrichment programs include sports, reading, arts and performing arts, which entice a significant portion of the student body to remain after school.
The school’s after-school program also allows working parents to let their children remain at school after hours, where they are provided with homework assistance, time to relax and time to interact with students from other grades.
Contact the school for information, and to reserve a seat for your child for the 2016-2017 school year. Seats are limited with demand for seats in the school growing as the population of Williamsburg continues to grow.
