Successful students — achieving their goals in school and in life — are at the heart of the learning community that is Staten Island Academy. An independent, co-educational, college prep school for Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12, the Academy provides an inspiring balance of intellectual challenge, exploration, service, and opportunity. Our students learn to be critical thinkers, ethical leaders, and self-reliant problem solvers, who are equipped to navigate a complex and ever-changing world. We prepare our students to become life-long learners. Academy students find their own voices, develop their talents, and raise their aspirations. Staten Island Academy proudly recognizes, respects, and affirms the dignity and worth of all members of our community.

Our Diversity Mission
Rooted in the belief that diversity creates excellence, Staten Island Academy welcomes a multiplicity of voices and perspectives that includes, but is not limited to, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, family structure and economic backgrounds. We are committed to a program that deepens understanding of our multicultural world and affirms inclusivity in and outside the classroom. We expect members of our community to engage in open and ongoing dialogue on diversity issues to promote awareness, understanding and respect and to use these conversations as catalysts for individual and collective growth. To move beyond tolerance, we support and assist our students, faculty and parents in successfully negotiating and embracing the distinctive heritages, beliefs, and differences that form our common humanity.
