Saint Elizabeth Catholic Academy believes that it is an integral part of the educational ministry of the Catholic Church. We exist to provide for the education of the whole child within an environment where spiritual growth, academic excellence, and an appreciation of multicultural values are fostered. We wish to provide our students with the opportunity to become contributing members of the Church, community, and society.Affiliations:St. John's UniversityYale University
