BUILDING STRONG VALUES
The road to academic success begins at St. Sebastian Catholic Academy serving the parishes of Blessed Virgin Mary, Help of Christians (St. Mary’s),
Queen of Angels, 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 are exposed to a variety of learning experiences including computer technology, art, music, foreign language, physical
education/health and library. The school also boasts a newly updated media center, as well as Wi-Fi and Smart Boards in all classrooms. Students
in grades 5 through 8 are issued an iPad. Our recently installed state of the art STEM lab has been a wonderful addition to our program for grades
Kindergarten through 8.
To further encourage its students to excel, St. Sebastian has a partnership with Monsignor McClancy High School for advanced classes in Algebra
and Earth Science for eligible 8th Grade students. Academic Intervention Services in reading and math are available for students who are eligible
for additional academic support. SETSS, Speech and OT are also provided.
As an added bonus for working parents, we offer students in Grades 6-8 an innovative and educational after-school experience – The Maspeth Town
Hall After-School Program. Sponsored by Maspeth Town Hall, this free, on-site program is available Monday through Friday 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 playspace 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, the Extended Day Program is offered from 3-6 p.m. daily. This fee-based program provides a safe haven
for students to play and complete homework assignments under the supervision of St. Sebastian staff.
As a testament to St. Sebastian Academy’s academic excellence, the 2019 graduating class collectively earned more than $600,000.00 in Catholic
High School scholarships, and students were accepted to the finest public high schools in New York City.
