Welcome to the Diocese of Bridgeport Catholic Schools

“How nice it is to feel that school is a second home. School then ends up being one big family.
One where, together with our mothers and fathers, our grandparents, our teachers and friends,
we learn to help one another, to share our good qualities, to give the best of ourselves,
to work as a team and to pursue our dreams.” – Pope Francis


From Our Superintendent

Dr. CheesemanI am pleased to welcome you to the Catholic Schools website for the Diocese of Bridgeport. Our schools, while each individually possessing their own unique environment and charisma, are an educational community of families committed to academic excellence and faith development and guided by the belief that all are created in the image and likeness of God.

Our students learn in a nurturing environment where high expectations find balance with love and respect. As a family of faith, we challenge our administrators, teachers and students to a higher standard and expect them to exemplify a life inspired and informed by the Gospels both inside and outside of the classroom. In this safe and loving environment, our students are taught a curriculum that was designed to meet or exceed state and national standards by qualified teachers who strive to transform their potential into success. In addition, a focus on Apostolic service to the community helps to develop in our students a love for their neighbor and gives them the opportunity to experience the joy that comes from helping others.

Our Diocesan Catholic School system transforms the lives of over 9,000 students in 20 elementary schools, 5 high schools and 1 special needs school. Catholic schools in the Diocese of Bridgeport have a long tradition of success evidenced in part by the fact that 50% of our schools have received the National Blue Ribbon of Excellence and that, year after year, standardized test results show our elementary students exceeding national averages in math and reading.

Please take some time to visit the websites of our schools and read about their accomplishments, unique curriculum, service projects, and technology, arts and sports programs. Each of our schools is a unique faith community. Be sure to visit and set time for a personal tour. I am certain you will find more than a school, you will find a family.
