New private school plans to open at former Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Academy in Wilton; 'a natural match'
WILTON — Shared enthusiasm for an educational vision they hope to create — coupled with some serendipity — has led two men to Wilton to start their ideal private school.
Schoolhouse Academy is making plans to open at the former Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Academy, which shut down last year. The building is located on the grounds of the church of the same name at 229 Danbury Road.
The new private school is not a religious academy nor is it affiliated with the church. But leasing the decades-old building to the new tenant school is a win-win situation for the church.

New Private PreK-6 Academy to Move Into Former Our Lady of Fatima School
With the recent spate of medical spaces and apartment buildings planned along the Rte. 7 corridor, the property at 225 Danbury Rd. owned by Our Lady of Fatima (OLF) and the Catholic Church’s Bridgeport Diocese sitting empty since OLF Catholic Academy closed last year could have been ripe for commercial development.
But instead, a group of charter school developers has struck a deal to lease the building and, by August 2024, they plan to open a private school there geared to children in pre-K through sixth grade, with hopes to eventually grow it through eighth grade as well.
