We appreciate feedback from our parent partners, and here's what some have said about Catholic Academy of Niagara Falls.
My family has been part of Catholic Academy for 6 years now and I can't imagine having my kids anywhere else. When we began with the school my plan was to only stay for preschool and then move to public school because we have a great district, but after just 1 year we couldn't bring ourselves to leave. The care they give to the children there is unparalleled. Including personal texts and phone calls, checking in if you are feeling uneasy. They go above and beyond in every sense of the word to make the kids there feel special to them. I have 4 children currently enrolled and a fifth coming up soon and we will always find a way to make this school work for our family because it means so much to us.
As an alumna of Prince of Peace School, I knew there was only one choice when it came time to choose the right school for my children. The community of parents, teachers and children are a true family at Catholic Academy. My children have thrived in small class sizes with individualized attention and have surpassed my expectations year after year. As an educator, I see the dedication this staff has in educating and nurturing the students they teach. I trust that they are in the very best hands each and every day. They have made my children feel safe and loved every step of the way. I have no doubt that this support will help lead them to make a difference in this world one day! Without hesitation, I highly recommend the community here at Catholic Academy of Niagara Falls.
When we were looking for a place for our son to go to school we wanted an environment that we were sure our son would get hands-on learning but also be encouraged to make friends and be himself. Our expectations have been exceeded by Catholic Academy. We not only get to be super involved in everything that he does but have gotten to know the amazing educators who teach our son when we are not there. It's a community of parents and teachers focused on raising and teaching our children, so that they can become kind, smart, and driven adults. We know when our son goes to school he's going to be in a loving and learning environment.
When it was time for our daughter to attend preschool, we immediately scheduled a tour at Catholic Academy of Niagara Falls. As educators ourselves we were looking for a school that felt safe, tight-knit, and like a family. After touring the building, and meeting the faculty and staff, we knew we had found our school. Year after year, our children grow academically, religiously and in their social-emotional skills, all because of CANF. Our daughter and son have had wonderful academic experiences, including STREAM, literacy skills, and math competencies. They also have learned from character education, compassion, honesty, integrity, and determination. We LOVE our school!
