St. Bartholomew Academy (SBA) is a Catholic elementary school with grades pre-Kindergarten through 8.

In 1992, the school became co-sponsored by the two Roman Catholic parishes in Scotch Plains, St. Bart's and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Accredited by the Middles States Commission on Elementary Schools, St. Bart's has approximately 230 students and is a thriving education institution dedicated to academic excellence in a value-forming environment. The school is under the direction of the Religious Teachers Filippini based in Morristown, NJ.
