Williamsburg’s Hidden Gem: Queen of the Rosary Catholic Academy


Queen of the Rosary Catholic Academy is making dramatic changes – just like its Williamsburg neighborhood.

With a dynamic principal, Marian Hernandez, the school resides in a fully renovated, former high school building at 11 Catherine Street.

The building is well configured with large classrooms that easily accommodate the students. In addition to these new classrooms for each grade, the building includes:

– a multi-media center

– wired and wireless connectivity

in each classroom

– an art room

– a science laboratory

– SMART Boards in every classroom

– 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.

Starting this fall, the school is adding Pre-K For All to its offerings.

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 more information, and to reserve a seat for your child for the 2015-2016 school year. Seats are limited with demand for seats in the school growing as the population of Williamsburg continues to grow.
