Welcome to St. Catharine Academy Middle School
The St. Catharine Academy Middle School is a middle school program located within a discrete section of the St. Catharine Academy building. Our school is handicap accessible with an elevator. St. Catharine Academy Middle School represents a reimagining of Catholic education in the Bronx. It is approved by the St. Catharine Academy Board of Trustees and the Mercy Education System of the Americas. We are excited to extend our legacy of academic excellence to middle school students.

How will a Middle School work inside a building?
St. Catharine Academy Middle Schol will consist of Grades 6-8, and will be an extension of St. Catharine Academy, Grades 9-12. It will have its own classroom floor. There is a dedicated bathroom on the same floor for the Middle School. Every student will have her own locker. Students will share facilities such as the cafeteria, Art Room and Gym with the high school but the Middle School will have their own dedicated time and/or section.

When does the Middle School day begin and end?
The SCA Middle School has its own beginning and ending time separate from the high school. Students will have a lunch and recess period each day. St. Catharine Academy provides before and after school supervision included in the tuition.
What is the academic program?
St. Catharine Academy will follow the traditional Catholic School curriculum for grades 6-8, with emphasis on developing fundamental skills in reading, math, and science while developing students’ critical thinking and reasoning skills. At the same time, students will enjoy expanded opportunities in STEM, art, music, and gym, sharing resources with the high school. All students will have a dedicated guidance counselor.

The religious curriculum provides a pathway for students to receive the sacrament of confirmation.

Does the SCA Middle School have services for 504/IESP accommodations?
Yes, the SCA Middle School has a dedicated resource center for students who have learning accommodations. We work with Catapult Learning and have certified teachers on staff to meet the needs of students and to oversee student learning plans.

Will the Middle School have any dedicated sports?
Yes, we plan to have volleyball and basketball.

Our tuition is $6,400 per year which includes a St. Catharine Academy leased technology device, early drop off and after school program.

Our registration fee is $300 non-refundable which covers student enrollment fees, supplies (ex. Art), testing, student accident insurance, student ID cards, and a graduation fee of $150 for 8th graders. Graduation will be separate from the high school graduation.
