of Holy Angels Regional School
Angels Regional School, founded in 1923 as St. Francis deSales
Catholic School, was established as a regional school in January of
1977 as an opportunity for parents in eight neighboring parishes to
provide an elementary education in an atmosphere of Christian concern
and faith values. In the Diocese of Rockville Centre it was the
second such regional school and, at present, is one of sixteen
regional schools. It services seven parishes, namely Mary Immaculate
in Bellport, St. Frances Cabrini in Coram, St. Joseph the Worker in
East Patchogue, St. Sylvester in Medford, Our Lady of Mount Carmel in
North Patchogue, St. Francis de Sales in Patchogue and St. Margaret
of Scotland in Selden.

as important as reading and math skills. With a Catholic tradition,
students develop integrity, honesty, respect and concern for God,
self and others. Mutual cooperation between the faculty,
administration and parents nourishes this growth.
addition to the Principal, there are 26 fully certified lay teachers,
many with advanced degrees, who give a certain stability to the school
because of their commitment to academic excellence and length of
service. Special part-time teachers give instruction in Music, Art,
Spanish, and Physical Education. Grades Pre-Kindergarten through five have self-contained classes. Grades six through eight have
departmentalized instruction from teachers specially qualified in
their field. We have full time health services provided by nurses.
