Founded in 2005 as Anchor Academy, Regina Pacis Academy began classes in September of that year with 23 students and four teachers. Since that time, our enrollment in kindergarten through eighth grade has grown.

Classes meet at the St. Mary’s School building in Norwalk, Connecticut.Regina Pacis Academy is a member of the National Association of Private, Catholic and Independent Schools (NAPCIS).


The grammar school is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary under her title of Regina Pacis, Queen of Peace. Our Blessed Mother, through whom all graces are received, offers peace to all who struggle to imitate her Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. Peace is the result of a well fought battle and rests with the pure of heart.

On the emblem, the crown of the Queen of Peace hovers over the flood waters with the olive branch, a symbol of peace, on each side. Small anchors can be seen within the crown. They are symbols chosen for our mother school, Anchor Academy, and symbols for Spes Nostra, Our Hope. Surrounding the crown are the words Our Lord spoke to his apostles the night before He died, “Pacem relinquo vobis, Pacem meam do vobis.” “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you.” It is in embracing the Cross that we find peace.
