St. Vincent de Paul School is chartered by the Board of Regents and operates under the direction of the New York State Department of Education and the Catholic Schools Department of the Diocese of Buffalo. The school has a full-day kindergarten and grades 1-8 and offers a full curriculum (State and Diocesan) including art, music, library, physical education, computer skills, remedial education, foreign language 4-8, advanced math (integrated algebra grade 8), instrumental music 3-8, drama 3-8, and a wide array of sports for all seasons.
Since education is important, not only to the individual but to the many communities in which the child lives, St. Vincent’s school accepts as its mission the development of each individual to his/her fullest potential, the preparation of each child to be receptive to the message of Jesus, share in the life of the Holy Spirit through the commitment of faith; to be of service to the Christian community at large. This mission has several dimensions which include the spiritual and moral, intellectual and physical, social and cultural nurturing of the child, achieved through supervised instruction in academics including religion, participation in spiritual experiences, appropriate guidance in self-discipline and carefully programmed extracurricular activities.
We believe that:
- Each child will understand the Catholic Church teachings and demonstrate a spirit of service in their daily lives.
- When given the necessary tools and skills all children can learn and succeed.
- A well rounded education is vital to develop the whole person – spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically.
- We challenge our students to become lifelong learners in order to be successful in an ever changing society.
