Caritas Academy was a four-year Catholic college preparatory for urban young women, sponsored and operated by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, and currently serves the academic needs of 210 students. Founded in the traditions of The Academy of Saint Aloysius and the Academy of Sacred Heart, Caritas opened in 2006 with a commitment to educational rigor and relevance. The Academy of St. Aloysius, one of the precursors to the Caritas Academy, had a long record of educating young women; almost 99% of all ASA graduates went on to college during the majority of the years that the Academy was active. The Academy had been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools since 1954. It was a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling, The College Board, National Association of Independent Schools, New Jersey Student Success, and the Archdiocese of Newark. Caritas accommodates schedules with New Jersey City University for the School of Visual and Performing Arts, and has affiliations with Saint Peter's College and the College of Saint Elizabeth to grant college credits.
Caritas Academy closed down on June 30, 2008. The building now belongs to Learning Community Charter School
The Caritas Academy Alma Mater song was as follows:
''With Charity and Sisterhood,
We gather everyday
To become the faithful leaders of the future and today.
We seek understanding
To love as God would love
And to show ourselves and all the world
The beauty of the way.
O Caritas Academy
In service and community
With faith and love
'We lift up our hearts with loyalty.'
