Three Ways to Commemorate Fairfield's 75th


Three Ways to Commemorate Fairfield's 75th

On St. Patrick’s Day, 1942, with the backdrop of World War II, Rev. John J. McEleney, S.J., and six fellow Jesuits met at St. Robert’s Hall Seminary in Pomfret, Conn. to create the articles of association for a new preparatory high school and college in Fairfield.

The spirit of those original founders continues to animate all that we do, and inspires in us the courage to move boldly forward, in the belief that we are fulfilling a profound mission to which we have been called as a learning community.
