Trailblazers Academy is a public school of choice for more than 170 students in grades six, seven, and eight. Many students have not been successful in traditional school environments and need a different learning environment to reach their full potential. A rigorous academic focus, paired with a comprehensive human development model and small classes, allows students to excel academically and build critical social and emotional skills needed for success. Over 80% of Trailblazers Academy students qualify for free or reduced lunch compared to approximately 52% in the Stamford public school system.
As partners in our journey toward excellence, the Trailblazers staff is committed to working hard and taking the steps necessary for each student to excel in this school, in high school, and beyond.

The mission of Trailblazers Academy is to successfully transition students to high school on track to go to college. While maintaining small classes and fostering positive relationships, the school builds a strong academic foundation for each student by emphasizing core subjects, high academic standards, life skills, and character development.
Our vision is that all graduating seniors successfully transition into college or some other post-secondary education upon their graduation from Stamford Academy.
