NEW YORK -- With the Catholic school entrance exam over, acceptances in the mail and decision dates drawing closer, the time is fast approaching for parents to decide where their child will spend their high school years.

For girls seeking a individualized attention in the classroom, a challenging academic environment and a myriad of extracurricular, Saint Barnabas High School may be the right fit.

Conveniently located on the border of McLean Heights in Yonkers and Woodlawn in the Bronx, Saint Barnabas High School has been educating young women since 1924. The school boast a 100 percent graduation rate, with the Class of 2015 amassing nearly $7 million in college scholarships.

Girls have access to AP classes and online college credits through Marist College and Mercy College and are able to participate in medicine and education internships. Extracurricular activities include dance clubs, cheerleading, environmental club, yearbook, National Honor Society, as well as basketball, volleyball and soccer.

In an effort to keep students focused on college, St. Barnabas also provides PSAT and SAT classes. Recent graduates have been accepted into colleges including: Princeton, Harvard, Fordham University, and Manhattan College.

Board Chair, Julietta Guarino ’68, invites prospective students to "test drive" the school for a day. “We invite parents and their daughters the opportunity to explore our school at a Shadow Day experience – sit in on classes and meet the teachers and students. Our faculty is committed to developing the whole person with the skills and values ready to successfully attain college acceptances.”

Saint Barnabas High School provides a first rate learning environment in a beautiful neighborhood, and is easily accessible via bus, train, and Metro North.

Visit the school's website or call Christina Washburn at 718-325-8800 x20 to arrange for a Shadow Day or learn more.
