WHAT MAKES SAINT JOSEPH CATHOLIC ACADEMY SO DIFFERENT?
St. Joseph Catholic Academy is unique to other Catholic, public and private schools in the Brookfield area. Our students are taught to live the word of Christ and our core values of Respect, Kindness, Faith, Honesty, and Responsibility are a critical part of their daily lives. Our parish pastors engage with the children both during Mass and also during religious instruction.
Our blended learning approach ensures that the learner is engaged in an individual learning experience so that the individual needs and learning styles are integrated in a blended approach that incorporates multiple teaching modalities.
In addition to teacher-directed instruction, online resources are used to individualize a student’s learning experience.
We provide enhanced opportunities for a diversified, differentiated experience that traditional classroom environments do not offer.
We offer flexible time frames that can be personalized, offering students the ability to learn at their own pace while reaching established target grade level goals and objectives.
We offer part-time courses to support and enhance students who may be enrolled in homeschool/other approved learning environments.
St. Joseph Catholic Academy serves students from Brookfield, Bethel, Bridgewater. Danbury, Newtown, New Fairfield, New Milford and Roxbury. St. Joseph Catholic Academy School has an open enrollment policy and accepts students on a year-round basis.

I am honored to send my children to SJCA. I’m the product of Catholic education, and for me sending them to SJCA is a priority.
Growing up in a Catholic school
environment kept me on a path for success academically, professionally, and personally despite the challenges of the times. It’s the least I can do to give my children the same foundation for success.
Our world is so much more dangerous, and has so many more temptations than it did then. SJCA provides the integrity my children need to become strong adults. The regular training in faith and character, routinely reinforced in our home, will echo throughout their lives and give them the moral compass they need to travel the straight tracks of life that we want them to stay on.
