Mission Statement & Values

Catholic Academy of Niagara Falls is a faith-building community of administrators, teachers, staff and families dedicated to providing a faith-based education, while fostering spirituality and academic excellence in a Christian community. 
Our goal is excellence, academically, spiritually, athletically and socially. Every day we encourage our students to try a little harder than the day before, help their classmates and gain a greater awareness of the community outside the school. 

  • Faith - "Trust in the Lord with all your heart."
  • Knowledge - "For wisdom will come into your heart."
  • Service - "I am among you as one who serves."
  • Leadership - "Whom shall I send?"
  • Character -  "Seek first the kingdom of God."

Our Common Goal:  We will create an exceptional learning experience.


We offer a solid foundation of academics and Christian values. We strive to educate the students in an atmosphere of love and respect. Outside of the home and family, the greatest positive influence on children is their school. Our school provides a unique and special environment for children during their formative and impressionable years. The educational environment emphasizes moral values and growth, both spiritually and intellectually. Students are guided in their development as individuals, encouraged to attain confidence to make decisions, assisted in acquiring a sense of responsibility for their society and helped to develop pride in their physical well being. The Catholic school is part of a larger believing community - all of who have the mission to assist the Church in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ through excellence in educational programs and service to society. We believe that making a difference through Catholic education means working for the greater glory of God.

We believe it is our responsibility to assist families in the education and growth of their children academically, spiritually, emotionally, socially and physically. Our approach to education is to empower each child to make responsible and appropriate decisions, perform to the best of their ability in all endeavors, and gain the confidence and knowledge for success in the next stage of their education.
