We’re coming to visit schools in September and October and want to meet you! Tuition and transportation costs to attend the Aquaculture/Agricultural Educations program are paid by the sending town.  We are a comprehensive public high school and a Connecticut State Agriculture/Aquaculture Science & Technology Education (ASTE) Center.

Interest in a career in aquaculture, agriculture, marine sciences, and/or marine trades and technology is the most important reason to attend Sound School. Our ASTE programs incorporate a hands-on, active curriculum that integrates subject area skills and knowledge, applied skills in the core subjects of mathematics, science and English/Language Arts while incorporating leadership skills and work-based learning experiences through the National FFA Organization and supervised agriculture experiences.

The priority application date was January 6, 2024 and we received a record amount of applicants! Unfortunately, any applications received after the priority deadline will be kept on file on our waiting list in case a spot becomes available. Thank you.

*Transfer Students, please call 475-220-6812 to inquire about potential openings.
