The Community
Situated on the scenic shore of Long Island Sound between Bridgeport and Stamford, this quintessential, yet modern and diverse town of 30.6 square miles, has a population of 57,340. Fairfield’s historic roots reach back to 1639, when its vast sweep of the salt marsh inspired the subsequent naming of both the town and its county. Rebuilt after being torched by the British in the Revolutionary War, treasured traces of the Colonial past remain within this suburban coastal town just a 60 minute train ride from New York City. Along the 8 miles of coastline, you will find 5 public beaches and the quaint village of Southport which is perched over the harbor dotted with boats and a private sailing club. In July 2006, Money magazine ranked Fairfield the 9th “best place to live” in the United States and the best place to live in the Northeast. It is truly scenic sophistication on Long Island Sound.

Educational Facilities
Excellence in education is the watchword of the Fairfield Public School system, with its 10 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, 2 high schools and a Learning Co-Op. Fairfield also offers many fine undergraduate level private schools and is home to Fairfield University and Sacred Heart University.
