Montessori Pre-K

Montessori is an innovative, child-centered approach to education and fits perfectly with our philosophy of nurturing a child's heart, mind, and body for life. Our program fosters a child’s natural inclination to learn. Montessori teachers guide students rather than instruct and students enjoy self-directed activities, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. Our program is designed to inspire exploration, independence, and confidence.

Kindergarten through Grade 8

Stella Niagara provides students from Kindergarten - 8th Grade the foundation for a successful future. While every child receives a values-based Catholic education, all religious beliefs and backgrounds are greatly respected. Our one-of-a-kind campus, located on River Road between Lewiston & Youngstown NY, offers a nurturing, holistic atmosphere for our students to learn and grown like no other. We invite prospective students to pay our school a visit and shadow for a day!

Outdoor Education

Our innovative curriculum provides students with a holistic learning experience that reinforces what is learned in the classroom with activities and exploration in our unique, natural setting.

Here, amidst the splendor of the private 104-acre Stella Niagara campus and the pristine beauty of the Stella Niagara Preserve, students in every grade will reap the benefits of an education that:

  • Emphasizes discovery of the natural world
  • Provides hands-on outdoor experience
  • Inspires intellectual and spiritual growth
  • Instills respect for the environment
  • Reinforces traditional Franciscan values.=

The Outdoor Education was implemented by advisors and faculty who wanted to provide students with the benefit of outdoor learning; then developed in collaboration with an environmental teaching expert. It is designed to supplement, rather than replace, our existing curriculum initiatives such as STEM, personal communication, art, science, and character development.

Outdoor education at SNEP is an evolving curriculum that seeks to give our students the special advantage of a fully integrated education they will not find anywhere else.

It’s your nature to do what’s best for your child.

If you’re the parent, grandparent, or guardian of a school-age child who would benefit from our exclusive, integrated Outdoor Education Program, you’ll want to learn more about our curriculum.

What parents are saying about Stella Niagara Education Park

Karmell Macoretta

“My years at Stella, even though it was only 3 years, were truly the best school years of my life. My son is gaining beyond academics that same sense of belonging. That’s what I want for him.”

Byron DeLuke

“If you look at the playground, the beautiful preserve across the street, the trails that surround this school, it’s an important part of education that is often overlooked. And that is something I'm very excited about for our boys. They tell us about the things they do outside, the other day they went on a beaver hike by the river - that’s outstanding!”

“There are many different religions represented at the school, not just Catholicism. I think that teaches children diversity, it teaches them about other people’s beliefs. We need that in the world today.”

“The core value system were very similar to what we tried to teach our children at home since they were toddlers and I knew they would get a quality education. It’s an investment in their future, a lifelong investment.”
