“Building Strong Values”

Greetings from St. Sebastian Catholic Academy!

Dear Parents/Guardians,
The road to academic success begins at St. Sebastian Catholic Academy which serves the parishes of B.V.M. Help of Christians (St. Mary’s), Queen of Angels, Church of St. Teresa and St. Sebastian.
Located in the culturally diverse neighborhood of Woodside, Queens, St. Sebastian Catholic Academy offers a values-centered curriculum and an academically challenging environment where students develop spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially.
Our students experience  a variety of learning experiences including computer technology, art, music, foreign language, physical education/health and library.  The school also boasts a newly renovated technology center, as well as Wi-Fi and Smart Boards in all classrooms.  Students in the Middle School are issued iPads at the beginning of the academic year.
To further encourage its students to excel, St. Sebastian Catholic Academy  has a partnership with Monsignor McClancy High School for advanced classes in Algebra and Earth Science for eligible 8th Grade students.  Title 1 services in reading, math and guidance are available as well as SETSS, Speech and OT.

Maspeth Town Hall sponsors a free, on-site after school program for students in grades 6, 7 and 8 daily from 3-6 p.m.
 “Pre-K for All” is a free program that is available to all students born in 2016.    Children have access to an indoor gym and a newly renovated outdoor on-site play space with state-of-the-art equipment.  As part of the program, students also receive a nourishing breakfast and a hot lunch.  
For all students in Nursery through Grade 5, a fee based Extended Day Program is offered from 3-6 p.m. daily.    
As a testament to St. Sebastian’s academic excellence, the 2020 graduating class collectively earned more than $600,000 in Catholic High School scholarships, and students were accepted to the finest public high schools in New York City.
