Betts Academy was a well-known private academy in Stamford, Connecticut that operated from 1838 to 1908.
The school was founded in 1838 in North Stamford by James Betts, a Yale graduate and Congregational Church deacon originally from Wilton, Connecticut. Later his son, William J. Betts, became principal of the school, and the Academy was relocated to Strawberry Hill overlooking Long Island Sound.
