SCA’s curriculum prepares our students for college and successful careers. Most subject areas offer courses at the Regents, Academic Honors, or Advanced Placement levels to meet the needs, interest, and abilities of every student.


Besides having a rigorous academic program, we also offer a rich array of clubs, student’s organizations and a great athletic program. Our athletic teams include, cheerleading, dance, softball, basketball and volleyball. All of our sports teams are part of CHSAA within the Archdiocese of New York.
