EXPLORE THE FATIMA DIFFERENCE—A PERSONALIZED APPROACH TO LEARNING
 
Our Lady of Fatima School is thrilled to be one of the first schools selected by the Diocese of Bridgeport  to lead the way in the future of Catholic education.
 
In fall 2018, the school launched a Personalized Approach to Learning- offering traditional classroom learning blended with the latest technology to provide personalized instruction for each student. 
 
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. 
 
We invite you to explore our Personalized Approach to learning during an Open House or tour. Please contact Mr. Stanley Steele, Principal for questions and scheduling ssteele@olfcatholic.org or 203.762.-8100
