We are a co-ed Catholic elementary academy, open since 1960, with a holistic approach to the child. We incorporate a curriculum of academic studies, foreign language, computers, physical education, art, music and a complete program of religious studies. Located in Flushing, NY, St. Mel’s serves children from nursery age through third grade from the Flushing, Whitestone, College Point, and Bayside areas of Queens.

Our Mission
St. Mel’s Catholic Academy fosters the spiritual, social, emotional, and academic growth of our students in a nurturing Christ-centered environment. Collectively, our community works toward meeting today’s challenges through creative thinking and technology, so that our students develop a strong foundation of academic excellence. We aspire to graduate spiritually alert, morally aware, and ethically-empowered individuals.
