|From The Principal|
Education is a long day’s journey into light;
“And so the purpose of Catholic education is to communicate Christ to you,
so that your attitude toward others will be that of Christ”
- Pope John Paul II
Transfiguration Academy, a Middle States Accredited Catholic elementary school, open to students from PK, ages Two Plus through the Eighth Grade, offers an enhanced curriculum and extensive extra-curricular activities.
The name, Transfiguration, representative of Our Lord’s transformation, was chosen to symbolize that we are taking the lead in transforming the face of Catholic School education and fulfilling our mission: To enable students to develop their full potential, meet the challenges of a changing society; become worthwhile contributors to the community and the leaders of tomorrow. This is accomplished through strengthening faith, enlightening minds and transforming hearts…. one student at a time..
