We are inspired to live our Mission Statement each and every day - ”every student has the potential to do amazing things.”

At Nardin, there are many opportunities for our students to do just that. We are a Catholic independent school founded by the Daughters of the Heart of Mary who continue to inspire us in their dedication to education and service to others.

Boys and girls in our Kindergarten through 8th grade program experience an enhanced schedule featuring extended periods which cascade throughout the 6-day rotation to appeal to different learning styles. In addition, students have the opportunity to participate in a DaVinci period set aside for project based learning that goes beyond the regular curriculum.

Our rigorous curriculum is supported by academic competitions with other local schools, national foreign language competitions, after-school math and reading clubs, dance and music instruction. Our healthy eating initiative is supported by our own garden where students in every discipline can participate in projects.

Our students remember fondly times they have spent participating in activities available to them. Elementary athletes play during three seasons on teams which include soccer, basketball, swimming, tennis, lacrosse, and track. As part of our performing, arts program, students can choose our fall musical, spring Performing Arts Night, two choirs and our orchestra. And In keeping with the spirit of our founders, our service activities include partnerships with St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy, Bornhava, the Ronald McDonald House, Baker Services, the Buffalo Animal Shelter, the Network of Religious Communities, a bi-yearly service trip outside of WNY, in addition to activities within the school in the library, the garden, and at our Montessori school West Ferry campus.

We are proud of our students who attend their first-choice high schools, often winning scholarships, lead us in prayer at our liturgies, and are leaders throughout the grades. Please come to visit and see for yourself what sets us apart as a premier learning and caring community.
