Building Strong Values
The road to academic success begins at St. Sebastian Catholic Academy, which serves the parishes of Queen of Angels, Church of St. Teresa and St. Sebastian.
Located in the culturally diverse neighborhood of Woodside, Queens, St. Sebastian Catholic Academy offers a values-centered curriculum and an academically challenging environment where students develop spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially.
Students enjoy a variety of learning experiences, including computer technology, art, music, foreign language, physical education/health and library. The school boasts a newly renovated technology center, as well as WiFi and SMART Boards in all classrooms.
Students in grades seven and eight will be issued an iPad at the start of the new academic year.
To further encourage students to excel, St. Sebastian has a partnership with Msgr. McClancy Memorial High School for advanced classes in algebra and earth science for eligible eight-grade students. Title 1 services in reading and math are available for students who need additional academic support. SETSS, Speech and OT are also provided.
As an added bonus for working parents, the academy offers students in grades six through eight an innovative and educational after-school experience: The Maspeth Town Hall After-School Program. Sponsored by Maspeth Town Hall, this free, on-site program is available Monday to Friday, 3 to 6 p.m.
Pre-K for All is a free program that is available to all students born in 2012.
Children have access to an indoor gym and a newly renovated outdoor on-site playspace with state-of-the-art equipment. As part of the program, students receive a nourishing breakfast and a hot lunch.
For all students in nursery through grade five, the extended day program is offered from 3 to 6 p.m. daily. This fee-based program provides a safe haven for students to play and complete homework assignments under the supervision of St. Sebastian’s staff.
As a testament to St. Sebastian School’s academic excellence, the 2016 graduating class collectively earned over $850,000 in Catholic high school scholarships, and students were accepted to the finest public high schools in New York City.
