Exciting News!

We are excited to announce that beginning in the 2018 – 2019 academic year, St. Mary School (SMS) in Branford will join together with Our Lady of Mercy School (OLM) in Madison to form a new school serving east shoreline communities – the East Shoreline Catholic Academy (ESCA). This new school will be housed at the current site of St. Mary School (SMS), located at 62 Cedar Street, Branford. ESCA will employ the progressive STREAM educational model that richly enhances students’ learning experience by incorporating technology and engineering into a traditional curriculum. It is important to note that the new school will be an authentic Catholic school, which teaches the faith and helps students grow in their relationship with God. Fr. Daniel McLearen of St. Margaret Parish in Madison, Fr. Stephen Sledesky of St. George Parish in Guilford, and Fr. Daniel Keefe of St. John Bosco Parish in Branford, whose parishes operate SMS and OLM, in consult with the Office of Education, Evangelization and Catechesis (OEEC), are confident in this decision and are extremely optimistic about the future of Catholic school education on the east shoreline. We ask God’s blessings on the new East Shoreline Catholic Academy and on the families who will become the heart of its community.
