Named after Ignatius Cardinal Kung Pin-Mei, a Chinese cardinal who suffered 30 years of imprisonment for refusing to deny Jesus Christ and the authority of the Church, Cardinal Kung Academy opened in September 2018 in Stamford, CT, as a division of Trinity Catholic High School.
"Neither sword nor fire can take away my faith in God"

Faculty and Staff
Teachers at Cardinal Kung Academy come from a variety of backgrounds and experience, but share a love of their subject and a passion for teaching.
Students come from as far east as Redding, CT, as far north as Patterson, NY, and as far south as Bronx, NY.
Due to the short time frame between the school's approval and the first day of school (3 1/2 months), Cardinal Kung Academy requested permission to use the curriculum of another classical school. The school owes a debt of gratitude and many thanks to the faculty and staff at St. Monica's Academy in Pasadena, CA.
The school currently leases classroom space at St. Bridget of Ireland Church in Stamford, CT.
