CYO Mission & Values:
The Catholic Youth Organization serves the youth of the Diocese of Brooklyn with its core mission to help the young people to be more Christ-like in the way they live and what they value. The young person is the main focus, not the athletic activity. Through the varied mediums of sports and other programs, the CYO promotes participation and sportsmanship with the leadership necessary to form a well-rounded individual, who will be prepared to live in a society with honor, dignity and Christian values, promoting Church, Family, and Community. The CYO emphasizes the following values:
COMMUNITY: Each participant, parent, coach, official and volunteer, working together to bring our Gospel vision and values to life.
HOPE: To nurture a positive spirit in each participant as they learn about themselves.
SERVICE: Providing opportunities and programs to young people as they grow in service in their parish community.
DIGNITY OF PERSON: Accepting one and other with respect, patience, kindness, and understanding.
SPIRITUAL GROWTH: Promoting participation and sportsmanship to foster the total development of participants and influence the formation of Christian values.

“The notion of sending one’s children to a new school is always a frightening one. More and more, it has become obvious that in our society a strong moral base is as important as that of academics. That is why my wife and I were so happy to be able to send our children to Immaculate Conception School. Our son has thrived in the Nursery Program. He is learning at an advanced rate, but more importantly, it has allowed for both his personality and spirit to shine. As a product of Catholic education, and having taught for a time in that system, I can say that there is not type of school that provides a better foundation than that of parochial. And of the parochial schools, Immaculate and its Nursery Program (and Kindergarten, of which our daughter is a part), are second to none.”
-Andrew & Michele Lodespoto, Anthony’s parents
“Our experience with Immaculate Conception School’s Nursery Program has been wonderful. Our daughter has developed a love for school and learning. Her teachers have created such a rich, stimulating and nurturing environment for the children. The music, art and gym programs have provided additional opportunities for our daughter to learn and grow. We also appreciate how clearly and consistently the school communicates with us which always make us feel fully informed.”
-Diana & George Siassos, Maria Luisa’s parents
“We are truly having a wonderful experience at Immaculate Conception School in the Nursery classroom. My son loves school so much he asked to go from the half day program to the full day program and wishes he could go to the after school program too. My family feels fortunate to be part of the Immaculate Conception family. I feel that my son is safe and loves when he leaves for school every day. His academic needs are not only met but challenged and enhanced everyday. My son has grown socially in many ways, especially with sharing and having empathy for others. We are truly blessed to be a part of this community and I would highly recommend to anyone to send their children to Immaculate Conception School.”
-Katie Zipprich, JJ’s mom
“My son has made wonderful improvements, not only academically, but also in his overall health and with his confidence. The teachers are supportive and willing to try new things and help him to learn and grow.
-Okubo-Reed, Rentaro’s mom
“I’ve had two children taught by Mrs. Coffrini and both of them love her. She has a way of making sure the kids are always happy and enjoy school.”
-Mr. & Mrs. DiChiara, Meadow’s parents
