Catholic Academy of Waterbury officially opened its doors on July 1, 2018. On August 27, 2018, we will welcome more than 300 students in grades Pre-K through 8th grade into their new school! Catholic Academy of Waterbury is a school within the Archdiocese of Hartford, but is led locally by its Pastors, Very Rev. Christopher Ford, Pastor of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception Church, and Rev. Roberto McCarthy, Pastor of Blessed Sacrament Church, and Principal, Mr. Jonathan DeRosa.
Catholic Academy of Waterbury is a heritage school of Blessed Sacrament School and St. Mary School. After years of uncertainty at both schools due to infrastructure and financial concerns at St. Mary School and a decreasing enrollment at Blessed Sacrament School, the decision was made to officially close the doors of both schools. The closure of these schools, though, paved the way for Catholic Academy of Waterbury, which is located on Robinwood Rd. on the old Blessed Sacrament School campus. The traditions and culture of both schools will live on at Catholic Academy of Waterbury for many years to come!
