The Nardin Difference

Four schools, two campuses, one Academy.

Founded in 1857, Nardin Academy is the oldest independent, Catholic school in Buffalo, consisting of a co-ed Montessori, co-ed Lower School, co-ed Middle School, and a High School for young women.

Known within Western New York for academic excellence, Nardin Academy encourages life-long learning and helps students ignite curiosity and find their inner passion and innate potential.

We invite you to explore our four schools, and discover the Nardin Difference.
