Students are at the heart of the Staten Island Academy community. Rooted in our history as an independent school since 1884, Staten Island Academy provides an atmosphere that balances intellectual challenge, artistic expression, athletic engagement, and service learning. On our campus, we prepare students to be analytical and ethical thinkers, bold advocates, compassionate leaders, and lifelong learners. We embrace the differences of our shared humanity through open and ongoing dialogue, fostering an individual and collective sense of belonging. Ultimately, student growth is the measure of our success.
Our students come from Staten Island, Brooklyn and New Jersey.
- 49% come from public schools. - 25% come from parochial schools. - 40% represent an ethnic minority (where English is spoken as a second language). - 43% receive need-based financial aid. - $2.5 million in need-based financial aid was awarded last year to deserving students.
