The School of the Blessed Sacrament
First opened in 1903, the School of the
Blessed Sacrament is a parish-based Pre-K through eighth
grade Catholic elementary school. The
celebrates diversity and encourages love of God, self and
others. Our parish, families, faculty and staff collaborate
to educate the heart and mind and empower the
children to embrace challenges in a loving, faith-filled
environment. Our well-rounded curriculum incorporates
strong ethical values and the development of each child’s
God-given academic potential. We integrate technology, fine
arts, music and physical education programs to provide a
liberal arts education for the whole child. The primary
aims of a Blessed Sacrament education are to foster
Christian leadership, individual responsibility and service
to family, community and beyond.
The School of the Blessed Sacrament is
located behind the Church at 147 West 70th
Street, New York, New York 10023. If you are interested in finding out
