Named after Saint John Neumann, the Neumann Classical School is a co-educational, classical curriculum, private school in the Catholic tradition located in Tuckahoe, NY (in lower Westchester County). Neumann Classical School is chartered by the New York State Board of Regents.
Combining Catholic orthodoxy with the academic rigor of a classical curriculum, Neumann Classical School is the only elementary school of its kind the New York City area.
We are taking applications for children entering pre-K (4 year olds) through second grade in Fall 2017. See our Facebook page for more about our ongoing events.
The Neumann Classical School seeks to educate children in the liberal arts and natural sciences by using a rigorous classical curriculum with time-tested content and methods of instruction.
We emphasize classical learning to give our students the tools they need to think soundly, to write and speak clearly, and to live virtuously. We seek to inspire the exercise of temperance, fortitude, justice, and prudence by extolling what is true, good, and beautiful and by enriching the moral imagination using the great works of the Western canon.
We hope to nurture devotion to Our Lord and the exercise of faith, hope, and charity through sound catechesis, regular access to the sacraments, and the example of teachers who love and serve Our Lord. We want to immerse our students in the living tradition of two thousand years of Catholic thought, history, culture and art, so that they might grow and flourish as sons and daughters of God.
