Diocese: St. Aloysius School Will Not Reopen This Fall

Citing declining enrollment, Diocese of Bridgeport officials said this week that St. Aloysius School—a New Canaan institution that has educated generations of local youth for more than six decades, including classmates Steve Benko and Rick Franco—will not reopen in the fall. The Catholic school has been displaced temporarily to a Stamford campus this academic year as St. A’s prepares to build a new 26,000-square-foot “Education and Faith Center”—a plan that remains in place (see below). Yet in a March 28 letter to the school community (printed in full below), Diocese Superintendent of Schools Dr. Steven Cheeseman noted that enrollment has declined by 40% over the past five years.
