Christopher Columbus Family Academy is a community school serving the Fair Haven area of New Haven, CT. In 2001, the school was selected by the U.S. Department of Education to develop and implement a Dual Language Program. Our school provides students with the opportunity to develop oral and reading fluency in English and Spanish through scientific inquiry. This school is driven by the guiding principles of collaboration, consensus and no-fault in order to make decisions that are in the best interest of children.
