PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Welcome to Our Lady of Wisdom Regional Catholic School... 
a wonderful place for students from diverse backgrounds to grow spiritually, educationally, and socially.

Our students in grades pre-k through 8th engage in a rigorous course of study in addition to learning about God and the Catholic Church.  Aside from academics, we have many extracurricular programs to offer: drama club, interscholastic sports, and programs that support our local community and churches, to name a few.

We encourage you to come and take a tour and see the many benefits of Catholic school education.  We have formal “open house” times scheduled during our upcoming Catholic Schools Week, but we will gladly accommodate you at any time that you would like to stop by.

John Piropato, Principal

Bishop's Catholic Schools Week Letter, 2015
Catholic Schools Week 2015 (1).doc
Our Lady of Wisdom Regional Catholic School was founded in 1938 by the Daughters of Wisdom. We are located in Port Jefferson, New York and we serve children from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Our students are generated principally, but not exclusively, from four parishes: Infant Jesus in Port Jefferson, Saint Gerard Majella in Port Jefferson Station, Saint James in Setauket, and Saint Louis de Montfort in Sound Beach.

Our Lady of Wisdom Regional Catholic School ensures that each child in our care will have a high quality education in a loving, caring and structured environment incorporating God’s influence within the learning experience. The school provides an excellent education within a faith based community conscious of the importance and individuality of each child to God, our Heavenly Father. Our students are made aware of their talents, which we as a school community nurture and cultivate to the fullest.

The Administration and Faculty aspire to explore and enhance our student’s full potential as well as to provide a diversified learning situation in which personal achievement and success are attainable. The New York State Learning Standards, including guidelines set forth by the Diocese of Rockville Centre, are applied to all curriculum areas. It is our desire to educate the whole child both spiritually as well as intellectually.
