HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A week after vowing to take action against Stone Academy’s leaders for abruptly closing its nursing schools, Connecticut Attorney General William Tong announced his office is now investigating potential violations of the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act by the nursing school.

Stone Academy abruptly closed its schools in East Hartford, Waterbury and West Haven, leaving more than 800 students scrambling. 

The three Stone Academy locations had low pass rates, unqualified instructors, “invalid” clinical experience opportunities and didn’t adequately record student attendance, according to the letter released Feb. 14 from the Connecticut Office of Higher Education.

According to the letter, Stone Academy leaders told the state on Feb. 6 that it would close its three locations. All classes and instructions were discontinued on Feb. 16.

Since then, the attorney general’s office has received over 100 complaints from students and faculty, Tong said.

Tong is demanding detailed information from Stone Academy about the education provided to students, tuition paid, and market practices.

Stone Academy is required to respond to the request by March 10.
