Resurrection School was established in 1928 as a Catholic elementary school for students in Grade 1through Grade 8, housed in what is now the Lower School building. In 1950, Resurrection School expanded to include Resurrection Academy, a girls’ Catholic high school, which was housed in what is now the Resurrection Middle School building until 1991. Today, Resurrection is a thriving Parish-based Pre K through 8th grade Catholic School. Students in Grades Pre K through Grade 3 attend the Lower School. Students in Grade 4 through Grade 8 attend the Middle School.
There are approximately 400 students enrolled in grades Pre K through Grade 8 at Resurrection School. Classes are small with an average class size of 18 students. Resurrection School welcomes all qualified students of any race, creed, gender, national or ethnic origin.
Campus / Facilities
Located on Milton Road, this building houses classroom facilities for Kindergarten through Grade 3 as well as for the Montessori Program (PreK-3 & PreK-4). This building contains its own gymnasium and auditorium, science lab, art room, music room, a full library, and a modern computer lab with iPad technology. All classrooms are equiped with SmartBoards, which allow our teachers to incorporate educational technology during the school day.
Located across campus on Boston Post Road, the Middle School building is home to classroom facilities for Grade 4 through Grade 8. Like the Lower School, the Middle School building also has its own extensive library, SmartBoards, science lab, art room, music room, as well as its own computer lab enriched with iPads. The Resurrection Middle School building also includes its own state-of-the-art gymnasium, lobby, and a new Chapel.
Educational Media Center/Early Childhood Learning Center
In July 2013, the acquisition of another building (the former Rye Methodist Church) was announced. This building is the home to the Early Childhood Learning Center for two-year-olds. Another section of the building is the Educational Media Center; a meeting space for assemblies and events for parents and students alike.
Our campus was enhanced in 2010 with the addition of a grass field that is utilized by all students and the Middle School Sports Program and after school clubs.The Kennedy Playground, which is centrally located between the two buildings, is used by both schools during recess.
With the solid academic foundation provided at Resurrection School, our graduates attend many of the top rated high schools in Westchester and Fairfield Counties. Many Resurrection School graduates are awarded scholarships from prestigious high schools, and virtually all of our graduates are accepted into the high schools of their choice. Last year, our 8th grade class received over $675,000 in scholarship money.
