It is my pleasure to welcome you to Saint Francis de Sales Catholic Academy. Since 1913 we have served families from the Rockaway community at our campus in the Belle Harbor neighborhood located in the Rockaways. We pride ourselves on providing a holistic Catholic education that nurtures hearts, inspires minds, and ignites the spirits of our students. All students and families are welcome at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy, where we celebrate the diversity of learners. We have a rich tradition of academic excellence rooted in our Catholic faith and the values of the Sisters of Saint Joseph. We see each child as a unique gift from God with their own way of learning and knowing, so we work to meet each child where they are academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. Saint Francis de Sales Catholic Academy provides a multitude of academic programs to support the diverse needs of all learners. We couple strong academic rigor with our care of the whole child to ensure that students are growing and developing into strong, assertive, passionate and justice oriented young people.
