Our Philosophy

In the context of a Christian environment, the student is nurtured and supported in the development of individual creative and God-given talents. Growth in personal faith, worship and values are integrated with a sense of social responsibility. Academic excellence is a hallmark of Stella Niagara Education Park's education program. Meeting the needs of the student at each particular stage of growth provides the underlying structure of the educational program upon which the development of the student's academic skills, critical thinking, decision-making processes, and social skills are based. Fostering growth in self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-expression is also fundamental to the structure of the program. At Stella Niagara Education Park, parents are involved and seen as the primary educators; it is only through this partnership with parents that the educational program is truly successful.

Fostering an environment of sharing, caring, and respect among students, parents, faculty, administration, and support staff is a primary importance at Stella Niagara Education Park.

Our Mission

This heritage is rooted in an understanding of the individual as unique, respected, and cherished. Stella Niagara is a community sharing a purpose and interest, both in individual achievement and social responsibility.

Our Vision

Nurturing a Child's Heart, Mind, and Body for Life.

What people are saying about Stella Niagara Education Park

Zac Sperry

Stella Niagara prepared me well for Canisius High School. Stella was like a warmup for high school. I felt confident with my writing. CHS asks us to write a lot and I felt capable and my grades reflected that I could write pretty well.  I also felt comfortable contacting teachers for clarification but most of all I feel like Stella gave me a good work ethic and the confidence to try new things.

The memories, experiences and knowledge gained from my Stella Niagara experience is only enhanced by my ability to share the gift with my children. We could not be happier to be a part of the Stella Niagara family. The life lessons and experiences offered are beyond what any other school could offer.

“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.”

Lola Sperry

I am a freshman at Buffalo Seminary and I feel that my experience at Stella Niagara helped me transition into a high school student easily. At Stella Niagara we were always encouraged to ask our teachers questions and because of this I am able to do this easily in high school. My teachers at Buffalo Seminary told me that they were impressed that I e-mailed them to ask for extra help. They said it was really good that I advocated for myself.  I learned to do this from my teachers at Stella.  I also learned at Stella to join lots of clubs and activities and I am doing that in high school and having a lot of fun!

Attending Stella Niagara gave me a great education that helped me get ahead in High School and also gave me a solid academic foundation. Not only did it help me academically, but it also helped me grow my faith and develop a relationship with God. I really think that I'm lucky to have had the "Stella Advantage" and I love seeing other experience the same thing through social media.

“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.”

“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.”

“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!”

Jason and Sarah Sperry

We are incredibly pleased with our children’s Stella Niagara Education.  They were both well prepared for High School and were able to secure significant scholarships for their respective schools. Our children were able to participate in not only a rigorous academic program, but they were able to explore athletics  and extracurriculars. Both Zac and Lola have continued to push themselves academically and pursue extracurriculars. They enjoy being a part of their high school communities the same as they were at Stella. They know that being a part of a community and contributing helps their overall achievement both in and out of the classroom.They continued to follow the and they have continued that in high school. The Stella Niagara Education Park receives the Sperry Family’s highest reccommendations!
