The Harmony In Between: Balancing Academics and Athletics at Immaculate High School


Nestled in the rolling hills of Fairfield County and just over the New York border is Immaculate High School, a private, Catholic, co-ed institution with roughly 400 enrolling students annually. 

As an independent school with students hailing from over 30 unique towns and cities, Mustangs are diverse in their interests and backgrounds.

According to, Immaculate currently is ranked #8 out of 249 high schools as “Best High Schools for Athletes in Connecticut.” Also recognized as an A+ rated school, representing the top 2.5% of schools in the country, Immaculate offers the perfect balance between college-prep academics and athletics.    

At Immaculate, students are encouraged to seek out their passions, try new things and never be afraid to take the first step. With 27 Varsity sports, athletes of all skill levels can find their home on the court or field, at IHS.  

Whether that is continuing their favorite sport, working towards playing collegiately or trying something new, the athletic opportunities at Immaculate are both plentiful and available for all.

As our students weave their way through the rigors of high school life, we believe that athletics are a key component to staying healthy in mind, body and spirit.

Student Testimonials

I love Immaculate because of the helpful, caring, and wonderful teachers. There are so many different opportunities to try new things with all of the clubs, sports, and activities. The opportunities to take sign language, graphic design, and the nursing curriculum are wonderful. I chose Immaculate for the warm atmosphere where I feel challenged and supported.

I love Immaculate because our school isn’t just a school, it’s a family.  We are connected and we have great school pride that binds us in a way no other school has.  Everyone will be included and there is just so much opportunity for people to participate in our school.  There is no better school family than ours and that is a big part what makes Immaculate great.

I love Immaculate because of the welcoming, faith based community! While attending Immaculate, I have grown tremendously in my faith and have created so many great bonds with those around me. Being at Immaculate has helped me become the well rounded, respectful, and reverent individual I am today, and can not wait to continue to grow in faith as well as a person through these next 2 years of high school!

I chose Immaculate because of the excellent counseling department and for how well I knew they would prepare me for college. They really walk you through the entire college application process, and I have found that I am much better prepared than my Public School friends are. The Immaculate counseling staff ensures the success of every student.
