Fountas and Pinnell Leveling
At Saint Francis de Sales Catholic Academy, we use the Fountas and Pinnell Leveling system to determine each childs reading level. It is very important for each child to be instructed at their individual level. Leveled books allow students to read and comprehend various types of texts, exposing them to information and vocabulary they can understand. This allows them to gain background knowledge that will help them move onto higher level texts. It also promotes reading success for all students!

For the safety and well being of each and every child in our school, all volunteers must go through the following process:
1) Read and sign a code of conduct
2) Have a background check
3) Take part in the VIRTUS program. (Register at virtusonline.org. Download the registration guide.)
After completing the VIRTUS Program we ask that you please bring to the office a copy of your certificate for us to keep track of in our database. We hope that this is not an inconvenience for anyone, but we need to be sure that all adults who interact with students are in compliance.

St. Vincent de Paul Christian Service Program
This program is designed to help develop the junior high students into people of compassion and knowledge, people committed to justice, and people for others. During three years at Saint Francis, students will provide service to the greater communities of Belle Harbor, Breezy Point and the Rockaways. The hope is that through service, the students will become aware of their responsibility to be of service to all. The development of community, both within and outside the walls of Saint Francis, is a vital goal of the St. Vincent de Paul Christian Service Program and Saint Francis de Sales Catholic Academy. This service is also part of preparing our students for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Learn More
