Tyburn Academy of Mary Immaculate

Veritas liberabit vos. The truth will

set you free.



Curriculum Overview


Tyburn Academy is an independent, Regents-chartered middle/high school, whose founder believed that young men and women have a natural capacity and desire for seeking truth through intellectual and spiritual growth. Our aim is to develop the minds of students by exposing them to permanent truths in the intellectual, moral and aesthetic fields. These truths, integrated with the Good News of the Gospel, will free them. Hence our motto: Veritas liberabit vos, "the truth will set you free."

(John 8:32)


Tyburn strives for excellence in the basic skills of learning to prepare students for higher liberal education and for living their faith. Tyburn Academy has a responsibility to those who come here to learn, to study and to progress, that they shall have the opportunity to do so in decency, in peace and in safety. The foundation of this school is Christ, the perfect model for a Christian person.

Virtue, courage and wisdom, goods of the highest order, are the aim of education. It is, therefore, the policy of Tyburn Academy to act firmly and decisively to promote the academic integrity and honor of this institution. We will strive for academic excellence, foster the practice of virtue, and insist on a standard of conduct and attire that will further these ends. With the small class sizes of Tyburn, we anticipate that the student who makes a sincere effort will succeed. The staff will assist the student to develop good study skills and to overcome difficulties.


Tyburn Academy exists in loco parentis; that is, it is not meant to usurp the role of parents, but to help parents fulfill their obligation to foster the intellectual and moral development of their children. Therefore, Tyburn expects the full support of parents in all matters pertaining to the education of

their children.
