We provide a learning environment where students from three counties and seventeen school districts witness, share and grow in the faith community.
The school is committed to providing excellent academic programs in a Catholic-Christian environment which promotes the spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of each student.
The school's curriculum is based upon the New York State Standards.
Our academic program is excellent and has a Christian foundation where religion is taught each day.
Our students thrive on the individual attention they receive and our parents play a large role in the operation of our school.
