TORRINGTON — The new school year for St. John Paul the Great Academy will start on Wednesday, Sept. 1.
The school, located at 360 Prospect Street, is the last Catholic pre-kindergarten to grade 8 school in Litchfield County.
According to Principal Edward Goad, the school’s enrollment has increased from 142 students last year to 172 students.
“I think we had an enrollment turnaround because our school is a very positive place,” Goad said. “Our school has a really happy atmosphere and the students love going to the school every single day. Our parents are confident in our programs and they all know their children are getting the best education that they can. We promise to do more this year, especially with our STREAM [Science and Technology, interpreted through Engineering and the Arts] education, which includes project-based learning]
“Our children are our future,” School Pastor Rev. Emmanuel Ihemedu
said. “We believe in them and that when they have a good education, they can succeed in high school and life. It is truly important to invest in our students because they are the foundation of our future. We believe in not just educating children, but also we teach them to be good citizens. When some people think about private schools they think it’s only for the rich. Our programs are not exclusively for the rich, but all students, no matter what their parent’s financial background.”
On Monday, Aug. 23, the Torrington Country Club will host a FORE The Children Golf Tournament to benefit the academy.
