Academy Alignment Decree


It was with great effort that the Diocese of Brooklyn undertook in September 2008 a strategic planning initiative entitled Preserving the Vision, which sought to strengthen the mission of our Catholic elementary schools. Strengthening and enhancing our Catholic education is important in our community especially in the efforts of the new evangelization. The academy structure is a two-tier governance model, which instills a Catholic identity and which develops multiple partnerships that would enhance the academic and spiritual dimensions as well as strengthen the financial viability of the academy itself.

In adhering to the Preserving the Vision declaration, Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio announces the following updated alignment of parishes to the academies:
