History

Saint Camillus Catholic Academy opened in September of 2014 under the direction of our Board of Directors and by a charter from the NY State Education Department and Board of Regents. The Academy Board is governed by by-laws and is led by the Board Chair. The Academy’s spiritual director is our pastor, Rev. Richard Alhemeyer of St. Camillus-St. Virgilius Parish. Prior to 2014, Saint Camillus was a parochial school connected to the parishes of St. Camillus-St. Virgilius, serving the families of Rockaway and Broad Channel. The school has a long history of excellence in Catholic education.

Its goals are to:

  • Provide quality teaching through traditional and innovative educational programs infused with Catholic social teachings;
  • Involve students to serve and support parish life and the local civic communities;
  • Graduate students who are critical thinkers, productive moral citizens, and leaders;
  • Encourage its graduates to further their studies and become mature responsible-virtuous-successful leaders who are productive spiritual men and women contributing to the welfare of their society.
