Financial Aid Information for Parents for 2020/2021 Year

Dear Parents/Guardians: 

I have copied for you, below, very important information regarding financial aid for next year and this school year.  Please if finances are an issue do not take away this opportunity from your child/children.  Re-register your child and apply for financial aid.  The application deadline  is now extended to July 24.  Complete the application form on  www.futuresineducation.org, click “Scholarships” and “Apply Now”

Also, send in your registration papers, and we will help make this happen for your child.  Different payment opportunities can be arranged with you in September 2020.  Families must be registered for 20/21 to be considered for an award for financial aid; data from Option C data will be used to confirm registration.

  Families who received a Teddy J. Forstmann (TJF) Scholarship from the Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF) in the prior year have received instructions on how to re-apply from CSF. Please contact CSF directly for assistance: nyc@scholarshipfund.org

·     Returning TJF parents should not apply to both Futures/FACTS and CSF/Civicore. Siblings can be added to their TJF application. Returning TJF recipients who also have a FACTS application will receive instructions to apply through CSF and the FACTS application will be closed. 

I continue to pray for you and your dear families.  As I sit into the virtual classrooms every day, it is a pleasure to see the work of your children.  I am proud of my faculty that have been able to continue to provide our children with the knowledge they need to be successful next year.

I wish to inform the parents/guardians of our eighth-grade students that the last day of instruction set by the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens for all Catholic Schools is Tuesday June 9, 2020.  They have set a virtual graduation date for all eighth-grade students in the Diocese for  June 12, 2020.  PLEASE REFER TO YOUR CHILD’S HOMEROOM TEACHER’S HOMEWORK PAGE FOR DETAILS.  We wish also in the future, when possible, to have a live graduation.  Details of this will follow when things can be normal.

I miss the children very much and will continue to pray with them every Monday virtually.  As always this information remains the same till June and can be found in your child/children homework page.

May God bless and protect you and your dear children.

Mrs. Frances DeLuca

Principal

Statement by Superintendent of Brooklyn and Queens Catholic Schools Regarding Remainder of 2019-2020 School Year

Statement by Superintendent of Brooklyn and Queens Catholic Schools

Regarding Remainder of 2019-2020 School Year

Dr. Thomas Chadzutko, Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Brooklyn, which
includes all elementary Catholic academies and schools in Brooklyn and Queens, has issued the
following statement following Governor Cuomo’s school closure announcement:

“We just learned of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s decision that all elementary and
secondary schools shall remain closed for the duration of the current 2019-2020 school year, as
New York continues efforts to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. As such, the Catholic
academies and parish schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn, which includes Queens, will
remain closed through the end of June. The distance and digital learning platforms in place will
serve as the instructional program for our schools for the remainder of this academic year.

I am very proud of our schools and academies, who were successfully able to transition to
a distance and digital learning platform almost immediately upon our school buildings being shut
down. This would not have been possible without the hard work of our teachers and the
leadership of our dedicated principals, who rose to this enormous challenge. Our Catholic
schools and academies have continued to provide each of our students with a faith-based
academic program, ensuring that they are being challenged to learn every day. Our parents have
also contributed immeasurably to the success of this new digital learning environment.

We will be working with our principals and teachers to ensure that our milestone
celebrations (graduations, step-up ceremonies, and other achievements) will be honored and
recognized. As we have done so far during this pandemic, we will continue to assemble and
share resources for our families as we confront this challenging end to the school year.

The Coronavirus statistics indicate that both Brooklyn and Queens have been the
hardest-hit areas in New York City and State. As a Catholic school community in the epicenter
of the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to pray for everyone’s health and safety. Our faith,
love, and hope remain central to all we do now and in the future.”
