BROOKLYN WEEKLY, JANUARY 26, 2020
BAY RIDGE CATHOLIC ACADEMY
Bay Ridge Catholic Academy is a new school offering a unique and innovative engineering and
arts focused curriculum.
This exciting new academy will provide children with a foundation for life through a
commitment to Catholic social teaching themes, alongside engineering design, integration of
the arts, and problem-solving skills development.
School life at Bay Ridge Catholic is anchored in the traditions and teachings of the Catholic
faith focusing on the belief that the spirit of God dwells in each of us and the belief that
combining the process thinking of engineering with the creativity of the arts best prepares
each student to meet the challenges of the future.
Students are encouraged to discover and develop their individual talents, to respect the
differences of others, and to become independent learners. Bay Ridge Catholic will provide a
safe and supportive environment in which our children learn and grow.
The new Bay Ridge Catholic Academy will be housed in the former St. Anselm building. Facility
renovations will include:
• New classroom furniture and design that supports student engagement and collaboration to
be installed in more than half the classrooms prior to 2020-21 school year. Remaining
classrooms will be upgraded prior to 2021-2022 school year.
Bay Ridge Catholic will continue the traditions of St. Anselm and Holy Angels Academies.
Building upon this history, we will continue to inspire an engaged Catholic family community
through ongoing events and programs that allow students and their parents to build
friendships that will last a lifetime
The new Bay Ridge Catholic welcomes all students and is aligned with the Bay Ridge parishes
of St Anselm, Our Lady of Angels and St. Andrew the Apostle.
UPK/PRE-K FOR ALL: We are an approved NYC Department of Education Learning Center
