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.

Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Bridgeport

It was a special day for me, spending time with some great students and parents at Our Lady of Fatima School, Wilton. Every school I visit leaves me with a certain focus and feeling when I’m there, for this gem it was the idea of Service. This community is truly exemplary of the service we, as Catholic Schools, truly value. Our students learn the value of being responsible for helping others, and this begins with our youngest and continues through high school.

I arrived on an exciting day—it was dress as your favorite story character! I came as they were saying a decade of the rosary, which they pray daily. I was then introduced to Christina, Ashley and Anna, all 8th graders, who were my tour guides for the afternoon.

We started with the 8th grade who were over with their preschool buddies, working on making dolls and pillows, which are donated to the homeless. It’s a program called Loving Hands, and each preschool group knew that their project was going to help someone else in much need. The 8th graders were also excited to share with me the many other service projects they do—one of their favorite was visiting the Norwalk Hospital during Christmas and giving out handmade cards from all the students, singing Christmas Carols and praying the rosary with them.

They couldn’t get enough words in to tell me all the things going on at their school—their STEM classes from grades K-8, the cardboard viewers that are used to go on virtual field trips where they can visit other countries, French and Spanish classes, the band program, Stock Club, the Coding for Kids Club…the list went on.

As I came back to the office and put all my notes and gifts away (thank you Susan and Margaret!!) I put the last of the notes in a folder, and at the top they had written, Our school motto is “Service Before Self.” I smiled knowing they are exactly who they claim to be, and I saw it, clearly!

Please flip through the album to learn more about this great school! They welcome you with open arms for a visit any time. Call for a tour and see for yourself what a great community Our Lady of Fatima truly is!

Amy-thank you so much for visiting our school and for these kind words. Fatima is a very special place and we loved sharing our school with you! Hoping to have you in our community again soon!

Thank you for visiting us and your very kind words. Fatima is a special place! It is home away from home. A place where we as parents can leave our kids and know that they will be taught in a loving and nurturing environment. We love Fatima and given the choice would choose it over and over again.

This is my son's first year at Our Lady of Fatima School, Wilton. He is in 6th grade. From the moment I handed in my registration last year I felt so connected to this school. He was in a school were he had 26 kids in his class before. Classes are smaller and it's like having your own private lesson. My son has grown leaps and bounds from help with the teaching staff. They all go above and beyond every day. Let me NOT forget to mention our principal Stan Steele: He greets the children every morning and he available to talk to a parent and or even a student. HE has given such insight of what Fatima is all about I call it MY Fatima Family. My son is not athletic at all joined the basketball team. The two dads who are his coaches are awesome they guided him and taught him the game. (Thanks coaches). Great role models and we are looking forward to 7th grade. If your looking for a school this is the place to be....

Wow, Amy, you really captured the spirit of the school with a lot of heart! Our first grader loves Our Lady of Fatima School, Wilton. Schools like this give us great hope for the future. Thanks so much! Oh, and I did find Super Mario!
