EXPLORE THE FATIMA DIFFERENCE—A PERSONALIZED APPROACH TO LEARNING
 
Personalized Learning allows students to learn in an environment that taps their unique needs and strengths in order to engage, inspire and empower them to reach their highest potential. 
 
While many teachers already personalize learning and differentiate instruction, this initiative provides the tools to take what they already do to the next level, and programs to support the traditional Catholic school educational experience.  
 
Technology is one of several tools to enhance curriculum  and encourage student creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication.   Another tool, the  “station-rotation” model, incorporates teacher directed instruction to small groups based on a student’s needs and student collaboration on a teacher assigned project, to create and communicate mastery of skills and knowledge.
 
In addition, Fatima continues to offer its STREAM curriculum focus enhanced by Innovation Labs.  Small Class sizes in the elementary and middle school grades coupled with a Personalized Approach to learning allow Fatima students to continue to achieve excellence beyond standardized testing norms.

What People Are Saying

I could never truly thank Fatima enough for giving me such a strong beginning to help me discover the subjects I was passionate about. The teachers thoroughly enjoy the subject they are teaching, and students are taught to be independent and engaged, learning how to think for themselves which is one of the greatest gifts Fatima has given me. The foundation I received from Fatima has always made me strive for academic excellence. 

An important part of my Fatima experience was playing sports. Fatima sports taught me not only the basic skills of each sport but the importance of teamwork, dedication, determination, endurance, and the drive to succeed. Fatima teammates were not just teammates, they were my best friends, brothers, sisters, but most importantly my family.

Fatima has taught me how to be compassionate, kind, understanding, faithful, loving, respectful, and accepting. Because Fatima functioned as a home and a family for me I was provided with the opportunity to discover who I was a student and a person. I learned the true meaning of friendship, the importance of remembering where I can from, and the ability to share my talents and gifts with everyone I meet in my life.

**************************************************************
 
I never thought I'd be writing this as my child enters 8th grade. From the beginning my intention was for my child to attend the pre-school and then transfer to Wilton public schools. As I look back, I am grateful to the families that came before us that embraced us and showed us this is exactly the place you want helping you raise your children! My daughter, I am proud to say has benefitted from all aspects of OLF - the sports, the academics, the honor society, the play, the friendships, and the most of all - the protection of her childhood. Fatima is a place where the children all support each other, and to my and my husband’s amazement - care for each other like family. She loves the alumni game where she catches up with all the OLF friends that have graduated. She talks to her "old" babysitters like friends, she has made new friends of the younger kids and hopefully is setting the same example that was set for her. Our family has increased exponentially with every new registration at OLF. We are grateful & blessed.
