Since 1884, Staten Island Academy has been the only independent school on Staten Island. Yes, we are a “private school,” but we are more than that. We are co-educational and non-religious. We are governed by a board of trustees, independent of any other organization. We are an intentional community of over 300 families, 75 educators and staff , and over 3,000 alumni nationwide — all of whom come together to provide a transformative experience for each student. Our independence enables us to turn school into the experience of a lifetime. Through small classes, a breadth of more than 100 courses and a teaching dynamic that fosters curiosity and conīŦdence, every student graduates ready to become an engaged citizen and a thoughtful leader. We are a Pre-K3 through Grade 12 school that produces young people of high character, whose curiosity, knowledge and goodness blend together to help form a foundation for future leadership. Our dedicated faculty instills in each and every one of our charges a self-confidence that allows them to dare to stretch limits and dream. As advocated by the Harvard School of Education, we want our students to arrive at unexpected answers, ask unfamiliar questions and seek fresh ways of thinking. We believe that in order for students to maximize the highest qualities of their minds they must have the time to play with ideas.
