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 School 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 more about the Blessed Sacrament School, please contact us at (212)-724-7561 or or visit us on the web:
