St. Albert the Great students learn to write well, read well, and think well in a program that emphasizes classical learning and values moral formation as part of the learning process in all subject areas. Our academic program follows standards laid out by the NYS Department of Education and benchmarks of a Catholic Liberal Education which sets us apart in our Catholic identity and academic rigor. Our students are prepared well socially and intellectually for higher levels of learning. Our teachers guide students from all different abilities to achieve their highest potential by respecting the natural development of children. As witnesses to Gospel truths, our teachers foster a culture of joy in learning, confidence in ability, and love of neighbor. Parents grasp the value of this deeply human formation that nurtures the souls, not just the minds, of their children.
Beautiful indeed and of great importance is the vocation of all those who aid parents in fulfilling their duties and who, as representatives of the human community, undertake the task of education in schools. This vocation demands special qualities of mind and heart, very careful preparation, and continuing readiness to renew and to adapt.
