After over 60 years of serving the NYC East Village Community, Saint George Ukrainian Catholic Church has elected to close its' elementary school doors after the 2012-2013 school year.
The St. George Academy remains open.
We are extremely grateful for all those who donated time and money to help our school over the years.
Mission Accomplished - With decreasing enrollment as the Ukrainian population in the East Village declined, it was determined that the elementary school accomplished its' mission to educate students of Ukrainian descent and should be closed
We wish all of our students, parents, faculty, and staff all the best. May God bless all of you.
Below is information from prior years.

The experiences and knowledge young children bring to school, combined with their natural curiosity, are the foundations for learning in the primary and elementary grades. Our program is designed to help develop children's potentials. The emphasis is on learning experiences which help children make connections between existing knowledge and new skills and information.
Our curriculum is approved by the NY State Board of Regents. All subject area outcomes are clearly defined, but learning is linked across these subject area boundaries. Classroom experiences are designed to be mutually reinforcing. In this manner, children see the connections between skills learned and their importance in real life.
