Our Mission

Where a Lifelong Passion for Learning Begins

Immaculate Conception Catholic Academy is a Grammar School located in Astoria, Queens, NY. The academy’s mission is to provide every child with a safe and nurturing environment that facilitates a love of learning as well as a love for God, others, and self. A Catholic Identity is essential us. Students from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade have classes in religion with an age-appropriate curriculum. Daily prayer is important, and there are monthly liturgies including Mass, the Rosary, Station of the Cross, Benediction, and May Crowning of our Blessed Mother, the patroness of Immaculate Conception Catholic Academy and Parish.

The education that I received at IMMAC made my transition into high school a lot easier.

Emily Hopkins - Class of 2019

What we appreciate the most about Immac is that it feels like home. We have been blessed with educators who love our child and who take the effort to truly get to know her so that they can motivate her in the ways she needs. Every year, her teachers exceed our expectations and work hard to make learning fun and immersive.

The Mangonon Family

Thank you ICCA for providing such a nurturing, inclusive, diverse and enriching experience to our daughter; for teaching her to have faith in something greater than herself, for continuing to be a shining light during some of the darkest times the world has ever seen and for the lifelong friendships!

The Lavoie Family

We feel so fortunate to have an option like ICCA, a place we trust wholeheartedly; a place that is diverse and inclusive and open to all those that are looking for an optimal educational experience for their children.

Immac was the foundation that helped me achieve success in my profession and in my personal life. The friendships, the memories, and the experiences have led me down a wonderful path that I want my daughters to take as well.

Being part of the ICCA community has allowed us to grow more socially as a family.

The Caruana Family

Our children are flourishing academically, spiritually, and socially and we are blessed to be a part of this school and community. Even through the pandemic, the quality of teaching never wavered. Both children continued virtual learning and were well prepared to be promoted to the next grade.

The Marchini-Nunes Family

The warm sense of community and faith that is central to the school has been a rewarding experience and we are so happy that Nathaniel is a student here. We look forward to many fun and rewarding years to come!

The Vitale Family

We are so blessed to be a part of this school. Even throughout the covid19 pandemic, the quality of teaching both my children are receiving has been phenomenal. Under the guidance of administration, the teaching staff never skipped a beat and went straight into remote teaching with the highest standards in place. So thankful for this school and the great job they are doing even during a crisis.

Kindergarten & 1st Grade Parent

One of the things that attracted us to ICCA was its size. Though small in stature, the school community has a BIG heart!

The Caruana Family

ICCA Nursery is a wonderful class that our child truly enjoys being a part of. The teachers are warm and attentive. The class environment is fun while learning. Teachers provide guidance on all aspects of early childhood development.

The learning environment is challenging, engaging and fun! Since her transfer to ICCA my daughter has made many friends, overcome her shyness, become more confident and now she loves math!

5th Grade Parent

My daughter has grown in so many ways since she started Nursery school. She understands what it means to share, be kind, follow rules, take turns. The teachers have incredible patience and love for every child.
