Welcome to The Catholic Academy of Stamford! We’re glad you chose to “Take a Look” at who we are, and what we can offer you and your student.
At CAS, we challenge children to discover and fully develop their unique abilities and talents. Even in the age of Covid 19, we offer a stable environment for learning.
We offer a low student to teacher ratio- even lower now due to social distancing accommodations in all classrooms. Through personalized learning, we develop individualized curriculums and encourage students to love God, learning and one another.
At CAS, we offer are academic excellence, a personized curriculum for each and every student, and a true formation in faith which prepares your student for success in school and life.
On a quaint New England campus in suburban Stamford, CT, The Catholic Academy of Stamford forms and nurtures students from PreK through grade 8 in the Gospel values of the Catholic faith. The mission of the school proclaims a superior academic environment that encourages its children to discover and fully develop their unique talents and abilities.
Here, at “The Academy” as it’s becoming known, we are adapting traditional Catholic education with high academic-focused, personalized curriculum that is markedly improving students’ ability to learn.
Coupled with a focus on Gospel Values and respect, love of neighbor, treating each other fairly, and compassionately, The Academy is “forming” their hearts, “informing” their minds, and “transforming” their lives.
Grades PreK3 through grade 5, caters to students at the beginning of their educational journey. Personalized learning is integrated early on. Working with students and their parents to develop individualized curriculum based on the students’ unique talents and interests, small class sizes facilitate master-level teaching allowing for a better, technology-based education coupled with one-on-one attention.
CAS students are uniquely prepared for high school and beyond. 8th graders are offered an accredited high-school level Algebra I course in Math. Advanced robotics and STEM courses are enhanced by Project Lead the Way for all students in grades 6-8.
Students are encouraged to express their faith and learn to live it. Throughout each day, students pray, work together, perform service and live unapologetically traditional Gospel Values. And the needs of today’s working families are met through early-morning drop-off and extended hours after school.
The Parent Volunteer group (PVG), akin to a traditional Home School Association, creates community-building events and activities for both students and families.. “There’s a wonderful vibe here,” states current parent, PVG Lead and Member of the Board Directors, Robyn Neto. “CAS creates a great learning and social environment for the children to get a topnotch Catholic education. I love the fact that we have such a great Catholic school and community in Stamford, run by an enthusiastic and nurturing administration dedicated to education and instilling strong Catholic values in our children.”
Thirty-eight-year veteran Catholic educator, Patricia E. “Pat” Brady has seen the broad transformation in the way today’s children are taught, versus only a short generation or two ago. “Families today are very informed and have choices that were largely unavailable to their parents and grandparents,” states Brady. “We prepare their children for high school, yes, but equally as important we help transform them into whole and giving citizens who will go out and make a difference in our world.”
