Admissions

Interested in joining the OLV School "forever family?" Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions a parent can make, so, instead of just taking our word for it, prospective families are invited to experience the school for themselves...

 

Schedule a Guided Tour

A visit can be arranged by contacting the school at (716) 828-9434. A staff member will show guests around the school and invite them to feel the warmth of OLV first-hand.

"Shadow Visit"

What's better than touring the school?  How about attending it for one day?  Families are welcome to set-up a day on which prospective students can "shadow" a current OLV pupil, following them through a typical routine. This is a great way to see our tremendous teachers in action! 

Enrollment Forms

OLV's enrollment process is designed to be as easy as possible.  Download and print the appropriate forms below, fill them out and send them to us.  Please don't hesitate to call the Main Office at (716) 828-9434 if you have ANY questions.

Tuition & Financial Aid

We recognize a Catholic elementary education represents a significant investment on the part of many.  The good news?  You are not alone.  The OLV Parish family provides significant financial support of your student(s), as do various community benefactors, friends and partners who appreciate what an OLV education means for the future of your child ... our family supports yours! 

 

Every single OLV School student receives some form of tuition assistance with the average aid amount totaling $3,632!  Funding to support your child can come from a few different sources...
 

  • Father Baker Scholarship (OLV Charities) – Families automatically receive substantial financial assistance made possible by OLV Charities and its generous donors. 
     

  • Catholic Parishioner Grant – If a family is not a member of OLV Parish, but is registered and an active at another parish with the Diocese of Buffalo, they are eligible for the Parishioner Tuition Rate. 
     

  • BISON Fund Scholarship – BISON is a donor-supported program for income-eligible families. Please visit the BISON Fund website at www.bisonfund.com for application deadlines and eligibility. We encourage families to apply for Bison Fund assistance.
     

  • Sr. Ellen O’Keefe, SSJ, Angel Fund Award – We recommend families apply for assistance through this fund named in honor of our cherished former principal, Sr. Ellen O’Keefe, SSJ. In order to be eligible for assistance, families must first apply to the BISON Fund.
