General Information About Stone Academy
Stone Academy has provided students with a career-oriented business education for more than a century. Its rich history dates back to 1864 when it was founded as the United States College of Business. Later the school became known as Stone School of Business. In 1988, as a result of a merger with The Academy for Business Careers, the school became Stone Academy. In 2002, following a merger with Goodwin Institute, Stone Academy opened a branch campus in Waterbury. Stone Academy’s main campus is located in a modern facility at 1315 Dixwell Avenue in Hamden, CT. The main campus consists of approximately 23,000 square feet containing classrooms, labs, a library, a student lounge and offices. The location of the main campus is enhanced by the cultural and business attributes of the Greater New Haven area. The branch campus is located at 101 Pierpont Road in Waterbury. This site consists of 7,000 square feet of office, classroom and lounge space. In addition, the Waterbury branch houses an on-site Headstart child-care center operated by New Opportunities for Waterbury, Inc. Our newest branch campus is located at the former location of Goodwin College, at 745 Burnside Avenue, East Hartford, Connecticut. It contains classrooms, labs, a library, a student lounge and offices. We are proud to be offering our Practical Nursing program in East Hartford for both day and evening classes along with Medical Assisting and PCA. The Stone Academy campuses are handicapped accessible.
