Welcome to Nardin Academy

We are thrilled to welcome you to Nardin Academy, whether you are a prospective or current parent, prospective or current student, alumnus, alumnae, or donor. Welcome. Welcome back. Welcome home. Welcome.

Nardin Academy, founded in 1857 by the Daughters of the Heart of Mary, is the oldest independent Catholic school in Western New York; our world is a rich and far-reaching one. The three schools under the academy’s umbrella nurture and prepare students—from those literally taking their first steps, to those figuratively ready to spread their wings—to take on whatever their next challenge may be.

The academy also fosters extended relationships with alum and family—former students, faculty and parents often remain in the community and participate in events, keep us up-to-date on their activities, want to know what’s going on here, and how they can help.

Parents have chosen Nardin Academy for their children for over 150 years; each generation and each decade evince equal measures of innovation and tradition. Today, Nardin stands as a testament to the faith that all our constituents have—both in us and in each other.
