STAMFORD – Trinity Catholic High School is pleased to announce the opening of The Learning Academy at Trinity Catholic High School. Applications are now being accepted for the Fall 2018 academic year. The concept for the program originated with the collaborative work and research done by Tony Pavia, former Principal at Stamford High School, New Canaan High School and Trinity Catholic, Robin Pavia, former Director of Special Education for the town of Darien and John Carrigan, Director of Guidance at TCHS.
The Learning Academy, open to 9th grade students, will provide core academics in small classroom settings of five to eight students. Core academics of English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies will be offered, along with the traditional TCHS classes such as Religion, PE and elective courses. This will be a three-semester program, with one semester occurring during the up-coming month of July. Extracurricular activities and community service will be an integral part of the program, providing Academy students with social and skill-specific opportunities for positive interactions within the school community.
“The effective implementation and true promise of our program fulfills a long-standing and carefully researched aspiration to provide quality support and services with strong, specialized instruction, all found in a Catholic learning community,” said John Carrigan.
