Saint Catherine Academy

Saint Catherine Academy is an important part of the Center, offering state-approved, private special education for students of all faiths, ages 5-21, who are impacted with autism, intellectual, and developmental disabilities. Our highly structured, multi-disciplinary program is relationship based and individualized. With high expectations, students grow academically and develop interpersonal competencies, as well as independent living and vocational skills.

The Academy educates students who are emotionally and behaviorally sound and available for learning, but currently unable to thrive in an inclusive setting. Our facility in Fairfield, Connecticut, is intentionally designed to help students transition from former environments to one that encourages greater independence. In our nurturing, learning community, students develop positive self-esteem and self-confidence while acquiring the necessary skills to reach their potential for independent living or a return to a mainstream environment.
