The shadow experience, led by our 10th grade students, offers a unique look into both academic and community life and the friendships forged at Nardin. This is a wonderful opportunity to spend the morning observing classes and connecting with current students. Shadow days are available to girls in the fall of their 8th grade year.
In order to select a shadow day, you must have an inquiry form on file. You can fill out an inquiry form by clicking here. Once your inquiry has been processed, or if you have already submitted an inquiry form, you can sign up for a shadow day via your admissions checklist.
For students interested in athletics, theater or dance, we have shadow days with specific programming in place to learn more about these opportunities at Nardin, and to connect with the departments.
If you are a current student athlete and are interested in continuing participation in upper school, please schedule a Tuesday or Thursday shadow visit if possible.
If you are interested in participating in theater or dance in upper school, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Class of 2028 Admissions Process
We are excited you are considering joining the Class of 2028 at Nardin Academy! Please use the following information to help guide you through the admissions process.
Applications must be filled out through Catholic High Schools of Western New York. As applications are received via the Catholic High Schools of WNY process, we will then create an account for your child in Nardin's admissions portal, Blackbaud. You will be invited to finish setting up your family's account in Blackbaud, which is where the rest of the application process will be completed.
The curriculum at Nardin is focused on your success, and your transcripts provide us with greater insight on your future as a Nardin student. The transcripts should come from your current school and contain a minimum of two complete years (6th and 7th grade) as well as the first quarter of your courses of the current academic year (8th grade). Transcripts can be requested from your child's school directly through your Nardin Academy Blackbaud account.
Letter of Recommendation
Nardin requires one letter of recommendation, either academic or from a non-academic person in your life such as a coach, dance teacher, music instructor, troop leader, or from community leaders where you perform service. We look forward to learning about your character, sportsmanship, leadership, work ethic, compassion, and any other traits that help us learn more about who you are.
