St. Aloysius is a unique school in Harlem, offering an excellent education to 265 under-served children at great risk of not meeting their potential. St. Aloysius serves youth from age 2 1/2 to 14, while also providing financial support and services to alumni in high school.
St. Aloysius offers a holistic curriculum inspired by the ideal of cura personalis, which speaks of the care of the whole person – the education of the body, mind, and spirit. Our comprehensive model includes strong core academics, an extended school day, an array of programs after-school, cutting-edge technology in every classroom, an extensive library, separate-gender middle schools, integrated music and art programs, an oratory program, summer school, summer leadership camp and much more.
Our vision is that children in our community will have access to the loving support and holistic programming that will lead to success in high school and open doors to good colleges. Furthermore, we envision our alumni not only succeeding in their chosen fields, but also developing a deep appreciation of their cultural past, a healthy sense of self-esteem, and a commitment to giving back to their communities.
