Catholic Schools Week 2017

Resurrection-Ascension Catholic Academy

Rise ~ Aspire ~ Challenge ~ Achieve

Resurrection Ascension Catholic Academy has been bringing quality Catholic education to the children of Rego Park and Middle Village for over 75 years.

Opened in 1939 by the Sisters of Charity, the school served a changing and growing population. Today, students represent over 50 different countries throughout the world. Resurrection Ascension students learn to embrace diversity, while celebrating what unites them: their Catholic faith.

Resurrection Ascension teaches students from nursery through grade eight. Every classroom is equipped with SMART Boards, and all students have access to our Computer Lab, two laptop carts and tablets. WiFi is available throughout the building. Sixth, seventh and eighth graders participate in a 1:1 Chromebook Program, where each student is given a Chromebook to be used at school and at home.

All students receive art, music, library, computer and physical education classes weekly. Spanish is taught to students in grades four through eight.

Working parents can take advantage of the before school and after school programs which provide children a safe and nurturing environment in which to complete homework, play and socialize with their classmates. Enrichment programs such as Lego Robotics, Bakers and Shakers, Mad Science classes and Chess classes are also offered.

Arts enrichment is also available during the school day. Students in grades four, six and eight participate in the Stages on the Sound Arts program, learning film making, script writing and acting. Third-grade students have a 10-week violin program taught by an artist from Midori and Friends. Ballroom dancing is offered to fourth and fifth graders, culminating in a performance for classmates and parents.

Seventh and eighth graders who are academically gifted may create a project as part of the Aquinas Program, which is a year-long investigation that is then presented to other educators and students from the diocese.

Resurrection Ascension School is truly a place “where everybody is somebody.”
