"Staten Island Academy believes that children learn best when their intellectual, creative, emotional, social, and physical growth is nurtured and challenged.
The Academy’s academic curriculum is rich, and rigorous at all grade levels. Tomorrow’s leaders must be well educated, well rounded and compassionate so the Academy encourages student participation in extra-curricular activities including community service, student government, academic competitions, student clubs, student exchange programs, JV and Varsity sports, and numerous after school offerings.
Teachers at the Academy are leaders in their fields. In addition to their work in the classroom, Academy faculty members are coaches, academic and activity advisors, role models and mentors.
We believe that quality education is a collaborative effort between school and family. The Academy encourages parents to become active participants in the life of the school.
The Academy believes that independent schools offer the best education possible. We are proud to be Staten Island’s only independent school, and the oldest private school in the borough.
