The Stratfield neighborhood has its own association known as the Stratfield Village Association (SVA ) that works to protect and preserve the character of the community. No other neighborhood in Fairfield has a dedicated association that is so involved in the preservation of its past and building its future. The SVA is involved in many community projects and activities. The quaint village center known as Four-Corners will be undergoing a $1million renovation project funded by SVA to beautify and make the intersection of the Fairfield Woods and Stratfield Road more pedestrian safe and walkable for the whole community. Four-corners is home to the newly opened Goddard School offering early childhood development and daycare. The SVA also hosts neighborhood town halls, the annual Stratfield Holiday House Tour, and annual block party at Owen Fish Park which is attended by over 400 neighbors.
The Stratfield neighborhood is home to Unquowa School, a private Pre-K through 8th grade school focused on student independence and creativity.
The community also houses Sacred Heart University (SHU, a private Roman Catholic college offering 80 degree programs on over 350 acres. The new Sacred Heart University southwest campus will house a hockey and skating arena scheduled to be open in late 2022, as well as the planned pool and diving center which will be open to the neighborhood for public use. The Stratfield Village Association has built a strong relationship with SHU. Residents are offered preferred seating and discount tickets to SHU plays, speakers, sports events and performances. In addition, the university has helped to fund community projects in Stratfield. No other neighborhood in Fairfield has access to world class university resources like SHU.
