About Our School

Welcome from the Head of School

It is my privilege to welcome you to Albertus Magnus High School – home to approximately 470 exceptional students in grades 9-12. As you visit this website, you will learn about our school, its people, and its programs. I hope that this brief overview encourages you to visit our campus and experience, first-hand, what makes Albertus Magnus a fAMily committed to preparing our students for college and beyond.
 
Albertus Magnus is considered a second home by our school community. Nestled only minutes from the junction of 287 and the Palisades Parkway in Bardonia, NY, Albertus Magnus has maintained a proud and respected tradition of Catholic education and academic excellence for over 60 years, and is considered one of the preeminent private Catholic high schools in the NY/NJ regions.
 
Our long-standing success speaks to the quality of our dedicated teachers and administrators, our first-rate athletic and music programs and extracurricular offerings, a strong parent support system, close knit alumni, and visionary thinking and strategic implementation of carefully crafted goals – all designed to provide a safe and memorable educational experience for each student.
 
Albertus Magnus remains committed to preparing students to serve and to lead in our complex society. Consistently, 100% of our seniors are accepted to the nation’s most well-regarded colleges and over 90% earn Academic, Merit, and/or Athletic Scholarships. Albertus Magnus’s well-rounded education promotes the development of each student in the Dominican pillars of Prayer, Study, Community and Service. A welcoming community, rigorous and relevant college preparatory program, small class size, use of 21st Century technology and teachers who encourage the unique talents and interests of each child are what make the Albertus Magnus experience unique. It is in this environment that we foster a culture of high expectations and servant leadership paving the way to develop their unique gifts and talents. Built on Faith and Bound for Excellence is more than a tagline; as we strive for excellence in all that we do academically, spiritually, athletically and as a community.
 
Our Dominican Pillars of Prayer, Study, Community and Service guide our school in all actions, every day. I invite you to learn about our dynamic programs by browsing our website and contacting our Admissions Office for more information or to take a tour of our campus.
