Welcome Waterbury Career Academy Students, Parents/Guardians, and Staff,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Principal of Waterbury Career Academy.       

My name is Michael Harris and I have been an educator in the City of Waterbury for over 20 years. For the last 14 years, I have served as administrative positions here in the city. Most recently, I completed my sixth year as assistant principal here at WCA, where I had the privilege to work beside Dr. Padua and Mrs. Gopie. I am honored to have been chosen to follow in their footsteps and become the new principal in 2021.

I look forward to continue to work with the entire WCA community we prepare our students to become college and career ready.                                                                                                                                                                 

If you need to contact me, please feel free to call 203-574-6000 or Email me directly.


Michael Harris, Principal
