Principal's Letter

  • Welcome to the Academy of St. Dorothy website.  At the Academy of St. Dorothy we serve students in preschool through grade eight providing academic growth in a Catholic Christian environment.  Our website will give you an idea of what an wonderful school ASD is throughout the school year!  Students are provided a strong foundation in academics, in a faith-based environment, with dedicated teachers and involved parents.  All of this helps each child to reach his/her potential.
    The Academy of St. Dorothy has developed an outstanding reputation in the Staten Island community and beyond for providing children with a solid Catholic education since 1932, but the Academy of St. Dorothy is much more than academics and excellent standardized test scores. We are dedicated to the spiritual and social growth of each student as well. We are dedicated to creating a nurturing atmosphere where every child feels welcome and secure, and we are dedicated to truly making a difference in the life of every family.  I encourage you to visit with us and see for yourself the difference an Academy of St. Dorothy education makes.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or to request additional information.  I can be reached via phone at 718-351-0939 or email (

    Thank you again for your interest and I look forward to meeting you soon!
