About

Philosophy

St. Bartholomew Catholic Academy is a Catholic elementary school within the Diocese of Queens. Ever mindful of our mission to spread the Good News, the administration, faculty, and staff are committed to authentically proclaim the Gospel of Jesus to all people. We aim to incorporate the rich cultural diversity of our students with a student-centered learning environment within our school. Our curriculum is designed with a balance of traditional and current methods of teaching that provide educational opportunities for each student. Our teachers motivate each child to his/her potential-spiritually, morally, emotionally, intellectually,
and socially- so that mutual respect is fostered.

Mission Statement

Our mission as a Catholic Academy calls us to administer to all students regardless of race, creed, or national origin. It calls us to create a school environment that develops the entire child. This development encompasses all areas of curriculum and is demonstrated in the loving care extended to all students by all members of the school. Each teacher fully accepts the challenge to “teach as Jesus taught” and “to live the message of Jesus’ love of God, neighbor and self.”
