The Cardinal Stepinac Croatian School of New York is linked to the parish of  Sts. Cyril & Methodius and St. Raphael Croatian Catholic Church.  We place great emphasis on the cultivation and development of the Croatian language in our students, and therefore, we are blessed with an accomplished Croatian school that focuses on language, culture, arts and history.

The Croatian School of New York offers classes from 1st Grade through 8th grade. Please note we follow your child’s school grade in American School. For example, if your child is first grade in American school they must be in first grade in Croatian School. Unfortunately, we are not in a position to accept any Pre-K nor Kindergarten students at this time. Grades 9 and up can enroll in the Kardinal Stepinac Kolo Grupa.

Our school year consists of a Fall semester (from September to December) and a Spring semester (from January to May), each one culminating with a special children’s show performance and banquet.

Our Croatian School is a non-profit organization and we continually strive to provide better educational services to our students.  Our ability to function as an organization and provide educational services to your children relies solely on three forms of revenue:

  1. Modest tuition rates
  2. Fundraising events
  3. Donations
