Curriculum & Activities

Gesu School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. We offer a well-rounded curriculum for students of all ability levels and an array of school year, after-school, and summer enrichment activities.

We believe that participation in activities encourages children to grow spiritually, academically, physically, and socially. We are sensitive to parents’ busy schedules and offer optional programs that begin before the school day (including breakfast) and last until 6 pm.
