The Mount St. Joseph Academy is a historic former school building at 235 Fern Street in West Hartford, Connecticut. It is a 4-5 story brick and stone structure with Colonial Revival styling, designed by Hartford architect John J. Dwyer and built in 1905-08. It was operated by the Sisters of Mercy as a Roman Catholic school for girls, reaching a maximum enrollment of 565 in 1958. The school closed due to declining enrollment in 1978.[2] The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 22, 1983.[1]

In 1996 the building was renovated for use as an assisted living facility, which presently (2013) is operated as Atria Hamilton Heights.[3]
