Immaculate High School awarded premiere Catholic High School recognition

DANBURY—, a national group that ranks K-12 schools across the country, awarded Immaculate High School with an A+ grade and placed it as the #2 Catholic school in Fairfield County and #6 of all Catholic schools in Connecticut for the 2021-22 year.

In addition to its exemplary diverse college-preparatory academic program that includes options for over 30 Advanced Placement college level courses and professional certification programs, the student SAT scores average 1220, and recent graduating classes have earned a three-year average of $24M in college scholarships and awards. School Principal Wendy Neil shares that students are able to be successful because of the “collaborative personalized academic planning and low teacher-student ratio.” Neil attests that the recognition by NICHE is a reflection of an exceptionally caring, dedicated teaching and counseling staff.

At the school, located in the heart of Danbury, Immaculate students welcome the competitive academic and extracurricular opportunities, the faith-based learning environment, and academic support.  In addition, students affirm that there is a family atmosphere that fosters respect and responsibility. “We pride ourselves on our ability to prepare students to be critically thoughtful, intelligent, faith-filled leaders’, exclaims school President Mary Maloney. In addition, Maloney notes that the school is able to deliver a recognized meritorious program for its students while maintaining a comparatively reasonable tuition for its families.
