UPDATED February 2019: If you’re looking for a Catholic prep school, parochial school, or a private pre-K or early childhood program for your child in Manhattan, our directory has you covered. Catholic, religious, and parochial schools offer rigorous academic study paired with religious teachings for an education that promotes both spiritual and intellectual growth.

Many of the schools also offer dual language programs, extended-day enrichment, extracurricular sports, STEM clubs, robotics, performing arts, fine arts, and music. Some of the schools also provide curriculum for children with learning difficulties. New technology is integrated into many of these schools’ classrooms to further learning, such as Chromebooks, Smartboards, and iPads.
