School Notes

The school nurtures a strong sense of community, high academic standards, discipline, and respect. Our curriculum includes a strong focus on STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, [the] Arts, and Math) and is deep in the traditions that have made our school community a welcoming atmosphere for 95 years. In 2016, our Elementary School was the top ranked among all private elementary schools and #8 overall (public & private) for the 8 counties of Western New York. Our goal is to provide the best value Catholic education in northern Erie County, and to prepare our students for continued success in High School, College & beyond!
