We have a full time Resource Teacher provided by the Kingston School District, however the principal must approve the IEP to assure that we have the services to offer the student.
We provide special education for students who attend regular classes but need resource room, or extended time, or a few other accommodations. Students who require special class sizes are not accepted since we do not have those resources. When you apply, we will review the IEP to determine suitability.
Approximately half the students receive grants and/or scholarships. These are based either on academics, talent, or need. Unfortunately, these are not large amounts. Typically, the awards amount to $500 each.
Yes! We encourage students to shadow. It needs to be arranged through our office. We will match up a visitor with a student of the same grade and gender. We do a lot of the shadowing during the month of February but we can arrange a specific shadow in other months too.
We are a small, private, Catholic high school. Because of our small size, students have the opportunity to be part of almost every program available here. They also will form strong bonds and friendships with the other students. Our graduation is like a family gathering.
We are proud of the alumni in our school. Many of the people in this county in important positions in government, service, and businesses are our alumni. As well, some of our graduates have reached high levels in the corporate world at a national level.
A student can graduate with either a Regents or Advanced Regents diploma following the graduation requirements of the New Standard and Assessments of New York State.
