St Francis-st Hedwig School

Tel: (203)729-2247
Grades: PK-8 | 248 students
St. Francis of Assisi School has been in operation for over hundred years and is located on Church Street alongside its' founding parish, in the welcoming rural town of Naugatuck, Connecticut.
Since class sizes of St. Francis are limited and available spaces fill quickly at all grade levels, we urge that application be made as early as possible for each September.
Our 'Open House' event takes place the last week of each January, during Catholic School Week.
Visitors are welcome at anytime throughout any part of the school year.
If class size permits and admission criterion is met, we do accept relocating students anytime throughout the year.
Our grades evolve from Pre-K through Eighth grade, therefore attending St. Francis eliminates the need for a transition to a middle school.
All academic requirements are met within our walls, for every grade.
Each grade has its' own classroom.
Class size can vary from below 20 to above 30, depending on each year's enrollment.
Our Kindergarten and First grade classes have assistants to help with administrative duties, allowing the teachers to the ability to provide individual attention to the students.
Unlike most schools, we offer a full-day Kindergarten and pre-school program.
