The mission of St. Amelia School is to provide a quality Catholic education that instills in students the spirit of Jesus Christ in a positive, caring environment, which allows students to achieve excellence and become responsible citizens in our community.
As an integral part of the parish community, St. Amelia School is dedicated to the goal of providing a quality Catholic education.
Following the guidelines established by the State of New York and the Diocese of Buffalo, we provide programs which foster spiritual, physical and academic growth.
Striving to develop a community where compassion and concern for the individual are central, we acknowledge and respect the uniqueness of each child, and endeavor, in a loving and trusting atmosphere, to instill the true spirit of Jesus in every student.
Mindful that the primary responsibility for education rests in the home, we share in this process and consider open communication between home and school essential to the growth of each child.
It is the vision of St. Amelia School to create an environment that gives all children the opportunity to achieve their fullest personal and academic potential in order to become productive and responsible citizens.
