Principal’s Welcome

Welcome Parents and Students,
Principal Dr. John Salatto
St. Francis – St. Hedwig School is our newest, and only, Catholic school serving Naugatuck and the surrounding communities. St. Francis – St. Hedwig School carries forth the rich history of both St. Francis of Assisi School and St. Hedwig School.

We are a pre-kindergarten through grade eight Catholic school that supports an excellent education in a welcoming, supportive, family environment. Our school is built on a philosophy that gives our faculty the ability to support the needs of students and gives them the opportunity to maximize their academic talents and skills in a spiritual atmosphere.

Our curriculum includes all academic subjects as well as art, music, physical education, foreign language and computer technology. Religion is taught on a daily basis and reinforced throughout the day with Christian values and behavior. Students attend Mass on First Fridays and observe the liturgical seasons and commemorate special religious events. Details about the curriculum can be found on our website later this summer that will give you an idea as to what you can expect your child to learn through the course of their education at St. Francis – St. Hedwig School.

In addition to a fine complement of religious activities and academics, St. Francis – St. Hedwig School offers an enriching social environment both throughout the day and through numerous Home and School Association activities. Parents play an important role in supporting the school with fundraiser’s and social events that bring together the entire school community. Each month, parents and students, as well as the staff, have events to look forward to that give the school an enriching and enjoyable climate.

We welcome all families who wish to give their child the gift of a Catholic education. Our school is open to parents who wish to visit and experience for themselves the benefits of a St. Francis – St. Hedwig School education. Please support our school throughout the year by attending student events and Home and School Association activities. You, your family and friends are always welcome to enjoy these events and share in your child’s school adventure!
