There is much excitement at Nardin this year and we are delighted you are interested in learning more. Deciding on a school is one of the most important decisions a family can make and we would be honored to partner with you in your educational journey.

As the oldest, private Catholic school in Western New York, Nardin is uniquely situated in the heart of the Elmwood Village, where children as young as 18 months to 18 years have the opportunity to experience an outstanding education alongside a vibrant, urban community.

Known for our academic excellence across our 3 schools, our High School has been rated by Buffalo Business First as the #1 Private High School in Western New York for the past 17 years. From our youngest students in our Montessori program to our co-ed lower and middle school to our all-girl high school, Nardin students lead with confidence, strength and integrity. They are curious and critical learners who champion equity and justice. At Nardin, students grow in their faith and spirituality as they serve others with humility and compassion.

Our promise to you is that we are making key decisions to continue to create a dynamic Nardin community that will maximize your child’s potential by engaging them in the world in order to create a better future.

We look forward to meeting your family. Please join us for a campus tour, sporting event, weekend workshop or open house, where you can see our exciting and dynamic community first-hand.

I invite you to learn about Nardin Academy and the Nardin Difference.

Warmest regards,

Catharine Miles-Kania
