STAMFORD—If a rainy move-in day is really a sign of good luck, then the Catholic Academy upper school has a really bright future in its store for it.
The long-anticipated move to the newly-renovated space in the west-wing of the Trinity Catholic building is becoming a reality. The process of finishing classrooms, moving desks, furniture, boxes and effects began Monday and continued into a rainy Tuesday, as rooms were being assigned and the blueprint for the new upper school began to emerge.
The space, blessed by Bishop Frank J. Caggiano on Pentecost Sunday, is bright, airy, with beautiful exterior views of the courtyard and athletic fields outside modern, clean classrooms. In a mere eight weeks, a new era in Catholic education and Personalized Learning will commence at 948 Newfield Avenue.
The Catholic Academy of Stamford will also open this fall to the addition of a second principal for the school. Principal Natalia Cruz will be based out of the permanent Lower School campus at 1186 Newfield Avenue, while veteran Trinity Catholic vice-principal, Christine Wagner, will assume the helm of the upper school, grades 6-8, just down the road.
