Fairfield, CT, 06825
Description: Saint Catherine Academy (St. Catherine) is a private state-approved school of the Diocese of Bridgeport, serving children of all faiths with ID, LD, speech and language impairment, multi-handicapped, neurological impairment and autism. The school was established in 1999 as a full-time day school for the purpose of educating students who require a functional academic and life skills curriculum. The school educates students ages 5-21 who are emotionally sound, motivated to learn but unable to thrive in an inclusive setting. A functional academic curriculum is offered based on the Common Core Standards coupled with instruction in activities of daily living and vocational skills. Related services in PT, speech/language or OT are provided for children whose IEP indicates a need. St. Catherine provides a stimulating learning community where students develop their potential in all areas of development. Young adults experience a transition curriculum that combines core academics with functional application and skill development. Aimed at preparing these young people to live in the adult world, students learn through positive reinforcements, immediate feedback and clarification and guided practice. The Academy's program is ungraded and children are accepted by referral from school districts or parent placement. All professional staff holds appropriate Connecticut certificates or licenses. The staff to student ratio is 2:1.
