Our Future Piarist School

Many groups have been working very hard over the summer helping to renovate our “new” school building, which is located on old Route 23, across from Porter Elementary in Hagerhill. The School will be ready for use in August 2015, at the start of our 26th academic year. BUT we will remain in our current location for the entire 25th academic year, which begins August 15, 2014 with park day at the spillway at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park. We look forward to seeing you there. Students may arrive at the park beginning at 9 am, and the student-parent cookout will begin around 5 pm. This will be a great opportunity for students to meet their classmates and for parents to meet your children’s teachers.
