New York City Middle School

    St. John Villa Academy

  26 Landis Avenue - Arrochar - Staten Island, NY
           
Currently, we are building a high school addition. As a result of the steady high enrollment over the past decade, SJVA was pressed to develop a strategic campus facility plan that would renovate existing buildings and increase the amount of space in our high school. Specifically, several of the oldest buildings on campus are unable to meet the space and program needs of our faculty and students. In order to maintain programs and to expand other areas of the curriculum, SJVA proposed a $5 million renovation and construction project. This will primarily consolidate the high school's academic space into a central location by enlarging and renovating the existing high school facility. A three-story wing is being built and connected to the current two-story high school. All new classrooms will be provided with "T1" Internet access lines. The project broke ground in December 2004 and is anticipated to be completed by September 2005. Of this $5 million renovation and construction project, $1 million must be raised from a capital campaign. Because St. John Villa is a private Catholic school, we do not receive public funds or money from the Archdiocese for capital projects and therefore, must seek private donations to accomplish this greatly needed project.
    Studio School, Manhattan

N-6
Initially opening in 1971 as a one-room schoolhouse in the heart of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, The Studio School has evolved as an independent, not-for-profit day school whose continuing challenge is to educate the minds and bodies of our students while allowing them to maintain their own spirit and character. Today we serve children ages two through fourteen and, while we are no longer a one-room schoolhouse, we still adhere to the principles upon which Studio was founded. Our vision, to develop an educational program that addresses the interplay of the intellect and the emotions, emphasizes respect for the process of learning in each child.

    Town School, Manhattan
  540 East 76th Street - New York, NY            
N-8. School motto, Gaudeant Discentes, means “let there be joy in learning,” and this, in essence, is the defining orientation of our school. While we know that learning – if properly done – is not always easy, it should always be joyful. Why? The most powerful learning transforms a person. When a student finally understands a difficult math problem, feels the power of a poem, or first grasps the vastness of our universe, a life is enlarged and the transformative power of learning is realized. This is an inherently joyful process, and it is what The Town School fosters.
