St Francis-st Hedwig School

  • 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.
