St. Clare School 2014 - 2015


Dear Parents,

Welcome to our new and redesigned website!  Saint Clare’s School, Accredited by AdvancEd, is a school where “excellence is achieved and tradition continues.”  For our current parents, we hope that you will use this site to find needed information about our school and matters of interest to you with regard to your child(ren)’s education at our school.  For parents of prospective students, welcome! Our hope is that through our website you gain a “bird’s eye view” of all Saint Clare’s has to offer your children. Our mission is to provide every student with a unique, student-centered intellectual and spiritual foundation within a safe and nurturing family-like environment.

While our staff remains consistent year after year, they are dedicated to improving their pedagogical skills so that they may provide our students with the most up to date and effective ways of presenting lessons and engaging students in their own learning.  We encourage our parents to partner with us as we work diligently to increase our students’ academic skills preparing them for “college and career.”

The spiritual, faith-based education we provide to our students is the core of everything we do.  Our Catholic identity is clearly identifiable to all who enter our school.  Jesus is clearly the reason that our school exists, and our students are a part of a Catholic environment that permeates all that we do at Saint Clare’s.

Students in Saint Clare’s School are educated with the latest skills based curriculum, as well as giving each student the skills to be successful in today’s digital world,  through our state of the art, cutting edge Technology Program. We are proud to say that our graduates are prepared to begin high school when the leave.  In addition, we are  proud  to offer the students at Saint Clare’s the benefit of a

  • Physical Education program in Grades PreK - 8  

  • Art to Grades PreK - 6

  • Italian to Grades PreK - 4

  • Music to Grades PreK - 6

  • Math and Science Enrichment in our PreK program,

  • Chorus in Grades 3 and 4

  • Recorders in Grades 2 and 3

  • Bells in Grade 4

  • Band in Grades 3 - 8.

Through our Drama Program, we offer students an opportunity to participate in a number of performances, such as our annual Christmas Concert, Christmas Pageants ( PreK, K), Spring Concert and  grade performances. Loved ones are invited to come and watch with great pride as the students present their “work of art”  to their families.  So you can see that while the curriculum is an important part of our school day we make the time for increasing the interests of the “whole” child, where fun is combined with learning.

As you meander through our website, I hope that you are able to recognize how special Saint Clare’s truly is as we work each day “to build a faith and educational foundation, one student at a time.”

For prospective parents, contact us at 718-984-7091 and make an appointment for a personal tour.  You may also wish to call if you would like any more information regarding our programs, and how our school may best serve your child(ren)’s needs.  We look forward to meeting you!


(Mrs.) Jo N. Rossicone
