Life At Stone Academy
At Stone Academy we know that a friendly and comfortable academic environment is vital to a student’s success. While each campus offers a traditional range of lounge and study spaces for students to use, it is our support services and caring staff that makes Stone Academy a great place to learn.
Some of our extracurricular activities and support services include:
2-1-1 Student Assistance Program
Every day people turn to 2-1-1 for information and support—whether financial, domestic, health or disaster related. 2-1-1 is a free, confidential referral and information helpline and website that connects people from all communities and of all ages to the essential health and human services they need—24 hours a day, seven days a week. No matter what problems you are dealing with, you can get help. You may contact 2-1-1 for help with transportation issues, childcare issues, shelter and housing options, utilities assistance, domestic violence issues, emotional support and more. On campus, reach out to a Stone Academy 2-1-1 Program Facilitator; or call: 1‑855-472-3729 or 2-1-1; or visit their Website at www.211ct.org.
A graduate’s first position is extremely important in developing a successful career path. Great care is taken by the institution in helping to equate a student’s interests and abilities with the most desirable job opportunities available upon graduation. To this end, Stone Academy takes great pride in offering Professional Development classes to its students. These classes include self-packaging, telephone usage, cover letters, and different styles of resume’ writing, interview techniques, and employer/employee relations. The Placement Director reviews all resume’s and assists the graduate in his or her job search. Continuous placement assistance is provided for all graduates in good standing of Stone Academy.
Some students will encounter classes in their course of study in which they need more directed help than a study group might provide. Students can get in touch with their Program Manager to inquire into having a peer tutor. The Program Manager will work to schedule a tutoring session with someone that volunteered to tutor in that particular subject area. Students interested in becoming a peer tutor should contact the School Director or their Program Manager.
Phi Beta Lambda
Students looking to engage in their community are welcome to join Phi Beta Lambda. Previous projects have included running a blood drive, raising money for cancer research and participation in other local fundraisers. Students looking to join Phi Beta Lambda can email Louise Pelletier at LPelletier@Stone.edu.
Community Health and Wellness Fairs
As a community partner, Stone Academy has put on health and wellness fairs at local churches and community centers. Here our Nursing and Medical Assisting instructors enlist students to help take basic vitals on participants and provide information on local health services and walk-in clinics. This is a great way for active students to both help their community and increase the mastery of certain clinical skills.
Graduates that are seeking a new position and would like help are welcome to email us at Placement@Stone.edu or call anyone of our campuses to get assistance.
Graduates can also stay updated on employer job postings by liking us on Facebook or following us on Twitter.

If you are having trouble making payments on your student loans or if you simply want to discuss the various payment options our Student Loan Consultant, Fran Lagano, is always available.

Loan Repayment Assistance
You’re not alone when it comes to student loans. Stone Academy has partnered with Inceptia, a division of National Student Loan Program (NSLP), to provide you with free assistance on your Federal student loan obligations to ensure successful, and comfortable, loan repayment. Inceptia’s friendly customer representatives may reach out to you if your loan (s) become delinquent. Inceptia is not a collection agency. We’ve partnered with them to help you explore a wide variety of possibilities such as alternative repayment plans, deferment, consolidation, discharge, forgiveness, and forbearance options. Inceptia will stay in touch with you via phone calls, letters, and/or emails to help you find answers to your questions and solutions to your issues.
