There are 166 students attending St. Aedan – St. Brendan School in pre-k through grade 8. The hope is that all current students will transition to the STREAM Academy next year.
Current St. Aedan – St. Brendan School teachers who are interested in teaching within the STREAM model will remain at the Academy and be trained in the curriculum.
Faculty members who choose not to teach the STREAM model will be given priority status in their search for positions at other Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Hartford.
