St. Ephrem represents at the NYC marathon

On Sunday our physical education teacher, Claudia Nigro, and our title 1 math teacher, Camille Manolfi, were joined by some of our parents and ran the NYC marathon.  The grueling race that spans 26.2 miles is the must run event for all long-distance runners.  we are happy to be home to so many participants and applaud their dedication and hard work.  Congratulations!  


Did you know?  The distance of 26.2 miles is a nod to Greek history, the first marathon commemorated the run of the soldier Pheidippides from a battlefield near the town of Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C. to announce the defeat of the Persians to the Athenians at the Battle of Marathon.




All Saints’ Day Prayer Service

One of the highlights of the year is the 1st grade’s All Saints’ Day prayer service.  Thank you to Mrs. Polizzotto for all of her work in preparing the event, and thank you to so many parents who came out to celebrate with us. 

Halloween at St. Ephrem

Halloween kicked off this year with the annual Halloween party and continued through Wednesday when students, faculty, and staff got into their costumes and had a great time. 

Friday’s Halloween party:

Halloween in the classrooms:

St. Ephrem Marches in the Ragamuffin Parade

St. Ephrem Catholic Academy students gathered to march together for the first time under the school banner at the 52nd annual Ragamuffin Parade.  This long-standing tradition features youngsters marching in their costumes as they gear up for Halloween.  This year our own James Jarah won in the individual costume category for his costume “I washed up on Shore Road”

Big thank you to all those that came out to march and cheer on our little guys and gals.  


Congratulations 8th graders

St. Ephrem Catholic Academy 8th graders received the Sacrament of Confirmation conferred by Bishop Tiedemann

We would like to thank the faculty, family, and friends who have guided and will continue to guide these young souls throughout their lives. 

It was the first class of St. Ephrem Catholic Academy to receive and we welcome you to a greater part of your lives in faith.

Welcome to LabLearner

St. Ephrem Catholic Academy is proud to partner with LabLearner.  Students have already begun their new science curriculum and entered a new age of hands-on learning.  All students in grades Pre-K through 8th will now have the ability to not only learn about how the world work around them, but also to experience it, by conducting weekly experiments to gain knowledge the way it should be acquired.  By doing it themselves!
