Schools: Private

Education is a very important part of life in Connecticut. Students across the state receive a solid and complete academic foundation, complemented by a wide array of culturally enriching programs at Connecticut’s extensive public school systems. Special education and individualized agendas are provided for students with particular needs and extraordinary talents, and many towns offer a broad selection of adult evening classes. Private and parochial schools for all ages and achievement levels are also widely available, as are numerous higher education institutions, including Yale, Trinity and the University of Connecticut.
