Private School Educat
Long Island City is home to many public schools, but the area is also known for its religious-based private schools, with four located within the Astoria community. The Immaculate Conception School is a kindergarten through 8th grade school, and is utilized by many of the Catholic families who reside in the area. Once students leave Immaculate Conception, they often transfer to St. John's Prep for their high school education. The school was founded in 1870 and is still a thriving source of education in the community. Residents can also look into Saint Demetrios and El-Ber Islamic School as private educational choices for their children.
