Welcome Principal Mary Ann Fleming!



Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Academy (OLFCA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mary Ann Fleming as the principal of the Pre-K through 8 grade school. Mrs. Fleming brings a great deal of expertise with her as she begins her role as principal at OLFCA which include, special education intervention, budget planning, strategic operations, and pandemic leadership. She is eager to meet and join her new community and learn about their great strengths. She expressed her commitment to the school and said, “I know Fatima is a special place. I look forward to meeting the faculty and families over the next few weeks, and as I get to know them, we can work together to ensure that the mission of OLFCA is being carried out.”


Mrs. Fleming has called the Diocese of Bridgeport her home for the last 15 years, at Saint Joseph School in Danbury. She previously taught third-grade, middle school social studies, English, and was named Assistant Principal there. Mrs. Fleming’s Assistant Principal responsibilities included daily operations, communication amongst the faculty, performing classroom observations, and teacher evaluations. As an Assistant Principal she was closely tied to the parents and the school community.


Father Reggie Norman is enthusiastic for the upcoming school year, and welcomes Mrs. Mary Ann Fleming to the school and parish community. Father Norman stated, “We are elated that Mrs. Fleming accepted the position. Her energy and vision align with the Fatima values, and we will only grow better with her leadership.” Mrs. Fleming is committed to keeping the school's motto, “Service Above Self” in daily practice, while discovering new ways to expand Christian values within the greater Wilton community. Her skills as a leader will serve the Fatima Faculty and students well.


Dr. Louis Howe, Jr. recently commented on Our Lady of Fatima’s Catholic Academy Facebook page as they announced her appointment, “I worked with her for two years and you are getting a real gem. We will miss her greatly, but I know she will serve your community as a great leader”.
