Our middle school builds on the goals and mission of our school by preparing our students to be young men and women of integrity, fostering academic excellence, and living a life of Catholic Service. By creating a secure, stable, and respectful environment, students are able to take healthy risks, try something new, and build relationships with their peers and teachers. We encourage students to express ideas important to them and to become confident and independent problem solvers who know how to be active, responsible and faith filled citizens.
At St. Edward, we believe early adolescents should be exposed to a rich and vibrant program that enables them to explore challenges in diverse arenas. Our students learn how to live the Gospel in the 21st Century through a challenging curriculum that is infused with the love of Christ. Our students thrive through their participation in academic, athletic, artistic and leadership programs. Through caring relationships with faculty members, students learn the larger life lessons found in learning, leading and serving. This critical aspect of our curriculum is certainly not delivered in the same manner as a math or English class. These enduring lessons are delivered through authentic relationships, through learning from mistakes, through active self-reflection and mentoring conversations. Ultimately, our purpose is to work closely with students and their families to develop appropriate independence, resiliency and the skills necessary to pursue a life of learning, leadership and service.
The students in fifth through eighth Grade change classes for each subject. Specialists in each particular subject area teach courses. St. Edward School provides an updated gymnasium and technology lab. Children with Individual Education Profile’s (IEP) or 504 plans are serviced at St. Edward School through the services of a full-time special education teacher and Syosset Central School District.
Busing is available through the student’s home school districts and is usually offered within a 15-mile radius from St. Edward School.
