We have much to celebrate at Immaculate High School!
Our vibrant school spirit has echoed in the hallways since our reopening in September. Students are thrilled to be together, engage in their sports and extracurricular activities, and lead community service activities. I am encouraged by the response of our students, parents, and faculty toward protecting the safety of one another as well as how our exemplary educational program continues for our students unhindered.
Immaculate was recently cited by Niche as the second best Catholic high school in Fairfield County, Connecticut, and the sixth best Catholic high school in the State of Connecticut. Such a remarkable recognition is a reflection of the dedication of our extraordinary faculty and staff. Their amazing commitment to assure that all students will succeed through personalized learning, counseling, and purposeful programming is exceptional.
Our mission calls for students to be involved with service for others and to practice their faith. In addition to a prayer service in honor of September 11 victims and first responders, Deacon Jeff Font hosted a back-to-school prayer service and school Mass celebrated by Associate Pastor, St. Edward the Confessor Church, Rev. Tim Iannacone. As one of the first Catholic high schools to begin a Catholic Relief Services program, over 100 of our students are committed to responding to global needs. Student school organizations such as the DoGooders, Campus Ministry, Rosary Club and Compassion for Action are taking the lead in making a difference in the lives of others. Our counseling program has begun its Advisory sessions for all grade levels and our Wellness Assembly program series began with a student presentation entitled "Dirt" by John Morello. Morello captivated students with his one-man show that explored the challenges on issues related to drugs, bullying, and self esteem, and he addressed personal strategies needed for maintaining a positive perspective for navigating life.
Admissions Director Denise Suarez and our marketing team have begun messaging new families, inviting them to join our school community for the 2022-23 school year. Our Open House was held on October 3, and placement testing dates, personal family tour dates as well as student shadow day opportunities have been scheduled for prospective students.

Many sincere thanks to our Golden Mustangs for joining us at our Mass and gathering, to the many alumni, parents and friends of Immaculate for sponsoring and participating in our Annual Golf Outing at Ridgewood Country Club, and for those of you who continue to partner with us and support all that we do at Immaculate High School. Without you, we could not move forward and provide our students with outstanding faith-filled personal, academic, and leadership opportunities so that they, too, can become compassionate citizens.
