Welcome to Notre Dame Academy

We are excited to begin another year as a regional Catholic School.  Although we are located in South Buffalo and are proud to be a vital part of the South Buffalo community, our students come from all over Western New York representing a variety of backgrounds, and over 20 parishes and churches. 

Notre Dame Academy accepts students entering PreK-8th grade.  We offer academic excellence while infusing our faith into all that we do.  Students also participate in a variety of activities, clubs and sports teams throughout the school year, and we are excited to add a new playground to our grounds this year for student use.

The home/school connection is a vital component of the Notre Dame family.  Families enjoy spending time with each other through a variety of activities ranging from our Labor Day Fun Run, Bowling and Game Nights to our Night of the Arts showcasing our students’ musical and artistic abilities.

This year promises to be the best year yet!

Parents can visit the BISON website at www.bisonfund.com and complete an electronic Scholarship Pre-Application for the 2016-2017 school year.  Due to the fact that they are in the process of converting to a new scholarship database, the Scholarship Pre-Application will only be available electronically for the upcoming school year.  Please note the scholarship amounts vary depending on the family's income, household size and the school's tuition cost. The highest scholarship amounts for 2016-17 will be $1,800.  Families will be expected to contribute partial tuition towards their child's education.  The Pre-Application is only for families new to BISON.  Current families will receive re-qualification paperwork in February 2016.

Our first deadline is February 29, 2016.  All pre-applications will be entered into a lottery drawing in early MARCH.  If families are drawn in the lottery, they will receive notification with instructions on how to proceed with the application.  We will also notify families that are not selected and place them on our waiting list.  

If you have questions, or need further information - please contact the BISON Fund office at 716-854-0869.
