Former New York City Catholic high school will be converted to public school

July 8, 2024
St. Agnes Academic High School in Queens closed in 2021; it is slated to become a 600-student public high school.

New York City is scheduled to start construction later this summer to convert a former Catholic high school in Queens to a public high school.

QNS reports that the former St. Agnes Academic High School, which closed in 2021 in the College Point neighborhood, will be transformed into a modern campus called 510Q that will serve about 600 students.

The New York City School Construction Authority says a total renovation of the outside and inside of the building is scheduled to begin in September. 

St. Agnes was an all-girls Catholic School. It closed at the end of the 2021 school year because of financial difficulties.

Officials say the renovated campus likely will not be ready to open until September 2027.
