Welcome from the Head of School

  • "The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities."
    -- James Allen


    It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I serve the community of the Academy of St. Joseph as founding Head of School.  I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue to work with the dedicated faculty, staff, parents and students who share and are committed to the exciting and unique mission of the Academy of Saint Joseph.  

    I hope that you will enjoy learning about our school as you visit our website.  I trust it will provide you with a glimpse of the rigorous, dynamic academic and extracurricular education our children receive as well as  the nurturing environment we have created.

    The Academy of St. Joseph remains committed to fostering a new generation of leaders grounded in character, competence and compassion.  Our goal is to provide our students with experiences that will encourage them to excel at what they do, to embrace a cause or belief with passion and intelligence, and to  strive at all times to treat people with respect and dignity.  The Academy’s constant and impressive growth over the years since its founding has proved quite clearly that there is an important place in New York City for a school with just such values.

    Our faculty and students are supported by an extraordinary parent community, all of whom have entrusted their precious children to our care and embraced their own participation in their children’s careers as  students.  For that I am deeply grateful.

    On behalf of the community of the Academy of Saint Joseph, I extend a warm invitation to you to come visit our school.
