St. Kevin’s School develops strong values

St. Kevin’s School at 45-50 195th Street in Flushing has been around since 1939. They have developed one of the best educational experiences in the area.
The Catholic school allows children to build relationships with faculty, peers and preaches a strong bond of both parish and community.
“We stand out because we have a strong emphasis on service and community,” said St. Kevin’s principal Madeleine Curley. “We help our students develop strong values and commitment.”
Curley said the faculty builds close relationships with the students. They watch to see them grow academically and socially as students with strong beliefs and really care.
There is a sense of community at the school as evident through the many generations of families that attend and the tight knit community support is overwhelming.
The school climate has gradually changed as society has over the years. While staying true to its Catholic identity, it also recognizes other cultures and religions and remains a diverse atmosphere, which in turn helps the students and staff appreciate other heritages.
They offer high quality programs in computers, music, art, foreign language, library and physical education, which Curley said helps with their goal in trying to “provide a dynamic environment with academics, art, and physical and personal growth.”
They also have an energetic and involved home school association and many extracurricular activities, including student counsel, youth guild sports, band, scouts and choir.
The school has enrollment for nursery school through eighth grade and has before and after school programs.
