Academics

St. Bridget School provides a Catholic, faith-based curriculum following guidelines provided by the Archdiocese of Hartford.   Those guidelines provide for the development of basic skills in all subject areas.  All students participate in the following disciplines:  religion, reading, writing, mathematics, science, geography, history, Spanish, music, art, health, and physical education.  Among the tools available for students to use are two computer labs with age appropriate software, interactive whiteboards, digital projectors, electronic microscopes, an AWS weather station, and an extensive library.  Annual school-wide events include prayer services, May Crowning, Flag Day, Christmas Concert, band and other choral concerts.  Student work is displayed for the art show, geography fair, and the science and technology fair where 7th and 8th grade entries are evaluated by independent judges with the first and second place winners progressing to the state level.

Students begin their journey in Pre-Kindergarten by participating in activities that allow them to develop spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually.  They complete their journey in eighth grade with a strong background in academic subject areas and Catholic social teaching as well as experiences in teamwork, social interaction, and community service.
