Why do we need a new school?

Catholic education in Bridgeport is poised for growth.  Nearly 2,000 students who live in Bridgeport have chosen Catholic schools.  Bringing students to one larger campus provides more opportunities for stronger academics, faculty, staff, activities, and a Pre K – grade 12 opportunities.  Further, the schools won’t have to incur the expense and costs of upgrades and renovations to several older buildings – thus keeping tuition more affordable for our families.

Who serves as principal of the Cathedral Academy?

Cathedral Academy is led by a new leadership model with a President and two principals, one for each campus.  Mrs. Jo-Anne Jakab serves as the President of the Cathedral Academy as well as President of Kolbe Cathedral High School.  Sr. Deborah Lopez serves as the Principal of the Lower School at the St. Raphael Campus, and Mr. Larry DiPalma serves as the Principal of the Upper School at the St. Augustine Campus.

Does Cathedral Academy offer financial aid?

Tuition assistance and scholarships will be awarded to qualified registered families who attend the Cathedral Academy.

Will school busing be available?

Yes.  We are in discussions with the city of Bridgeport to arrange multiple school drop offs and allowing siblings to ride together.

Is St. Ann School and St. Andrew School still part of the Cathedral Cluster?

The name Cathedral Education Cluster will soon be changed to Catholic Academies of Bridgeport.  Catholic Academies of Bridgeport will represent the Cathedral Academy, St. Ann and St. Andrew Schools.
