  • Physical Education

    Both mental and physical fitness are crucial to a child’s development.  St. Athanasius’ facilities include a full-sized gym that is home to weekly physical education classes for each grade.

  • Dancing Classrooms

    Twice a week, professional dance instructors teach students the intricate steps of merengue, tango, salsa, foxtrot, rumba and swing. The class develops the participants’ communication, cooperation, and team-building skills while increasing their self-confidence.

  • New York Philharmonic School Partnership Program

    St. Athanasius is lucky to have a New York Philharmonic teaching artist who comes to teach 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students about classical music.
