Located in vibrant downtown New Canaan, our students have immediate access to the New Canaan Public Library that is utilized by both teachers and their students. Our K-8 school has graduated students who are amply prepared for the challenges of high school and beyond. Attending competitive high schools, our students rank among the best.

"My name is Andrew Tully and I attended St. Aloysius School from Kindergarten to Eighth Grade and am now attending Fordham Prep as a Freshman. Throughout my time at St. Aloysius, I enjoyed every moment of it, and it thoroughly prepared me for High School. From the moment that Fordham Prep started, I was much more prepared for the school year than most of my classmates were and saw that I fell into the rhythm of being in a new school very quickly. I found that throughout my years at St. Aloysius, and especially in the Upper School, the classes that I was offered were at a high school level of thought, but presented in a way that made it very discreet. The smaller size of each grade has also taught me not to just hide at the back of the classroom, but to involve myself in the class." -Andrew Tully, St Aloysius School Class of 2018

"St. A's definitely prepared me for high school! In addition to growing in faith and being academically challenged, I learned organizational and time management skills. I think these traits are two of the greatest assets a new high school student can have and I’m very grateful to all my teachers from St. As who helped me develop them!" -Anna Gayer, St Aloysius School Class of 2019

"St. Aloysius School is a great place for many reasons! The faith-based education that I received at St. As prepared me very well for high school. My honors-level courses are challenging, but the skills my teachers ingrained in me allow me to handle the coursework." -Noelle Gayer, St. Aloysius School Class of 2019
