The music program is off to a great start this school year and there’s still time to join!



“Music is life itself. What would this world be without good music?”

-Louis Armstrong




Dear Parents,

The music program is off to a great start this school year!

This is a just a reminder that it is still not too late to join. If your child has never participated before, there is still plenty of time to get them enrolled and caught up with the classes. If your child has participated, and would still like to join, we’d love to see them back again.

Classes in most schools are available to students in grades 1 and up (violin) or grades 3 and up (band instruments). Grades do vary by school, so please call our office with any questions. Continue reading “The music program is off to a great start this school year and there’s still time to join!”

Diocese of Brooklyn.  SFACA received award at the World Mission Sunday Mass at The Basilica of St. James on October 22, 2017.  The Mass was televised on the NET.  We thank our students and their parents for their support and generosity throughout the school year.  A big Thank-You goes to Mrs. Kerins, our Missions moderator.

Support My Kid’s Future


My Kid’s Future is a national non-partisan grassroots group of parents and child advocates working together to ensure that President Trump and Members of Congress give every kid a real opportunity to attend the school of their choice. We believe that parents should have greater control over their child’s education. The best way to accomplish that goal is to pass a nationwide tax credit to expand education scholarships for low and middle-income families. When a parent has the ability to send their kid to a better school, the results are life-changing. We don’t advocate for more taxpayer money or more government interference in education. We want a proven solution that encourages charitable donations for scholarships to give parents more options. Parents and our kids deserve it. My Kid’s Future is a special project of the EdTaxCredit50 National Coalition. This campaign is funded by the Invest in Education Coalition.
