Back to School 2016

St. Mark Catholic Academy

The following testimonial was recently received in the St. Mark Catholic Academy, Sheepshead Bay, school office from a parent that registered his son this school year.

To Whom It May Concern,

I am a proud Saint Mark Catholic Academy parent. I have a 7 year old, that is in the second grade at Saint Mark Catholic Academy. He joined the school at the start of the 2015-2016 school year and has adjusted exceptionally well with the assistance of the entire St. Mark family.

Saint Mark Catholic Academy has demonstrated a welcoming, family-oriented environment that establishes a tone for an excellent learning experience. … Mrs. [Carol] Donnelly is an excellent principal, [and] she is also a great person with one of the biggest hearts a person can have. Mrs. Donnelly is in touch with every student and parent, and also makes time for those who may need her assistance. The first day my family met Mrs. Donnelly she stopped what she was doing and gave us a full tour of the school while providing an overview and answers to any and all questions.

Mrs. [Lori] Ryan is the school’s secretary, who has also provided time, and support to my family during our adjusting to a new environment. Mrs. Ryan also welcomes all with an open mind and support to the students and families while walking us through the process of procedures and/or events.

Mr. Michael is the president of the Home Academy Association, who does an excellent job leading, and managing the tasks, duties and events of the Home Academy Association. …

Ms. [Bridget] Leonard is the second grade teacher who works hands on daily with my son, and has assisted him tremendously in his adjustment to his new environment. Ms. Leonard has helped to nurture my son demonstrating patience and respect for himself as well as peers.

As my son excels in his studies I intend and look forward to building lasting relationships with all members of the Saint Mark Catholic Academy faculty and family.
I would like to take this time to thank each and every member of the Saint Mark Catholic Academy!…

Sincerely Yours,

Mr. Idris Horne, parent
