Welcome to Nardin Academy where our students receive the best in education, discover their gifts and talents and develop friendships that will last a lifetime.

Deciding on a school is one of the most important decisions a family can make and we would be honored to partner with you and your family in your educational journey.

As the oldest, independent 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 a premier education alongside a vibrant, urban community.

From our youngest students in our Montessori program to our co-ed Lower & 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.

At Nardin, our balance of tradition and innovation sets us apart. While many of us desire a return to normal, Nardin will ensure the safety and well-being of our students, faculty & staff, families and visitors by looking at this unprecedented time as an opportunity to reimagine and reinvent our traditional admissions programming.

From a drive-through kickoff celebrating the High School Admissions Season to Virtual Open Houses, fun and interactive Zoom classes for prospective students, virtual Coffee & Conversations and more, we are prepared to build even stronger relationships with students and families as they learn about Nardin Academy and the Nardin Difference.

Our promise to families remains the same. Your child will experience a dynamic Nardin community that will maximize your child’s potential by engaging them in the world to create a better and more meaningful future.

I invite you to connect with the Admissions Team and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

In all good health,

Catharine Miles-Kania
Vice President of Enrollment Management

"Inspiring hearts and minds to do amazing things for the world through faith, character, academic excellence, and service."
