Students walking down the hall of NCCS Prep School in Dunkirk NY

Northern Chautauqua Catholic School Prep School is comprised of grades 5-8 and prepares students for high school.  Students who attend NCCS Prep School are statistically proven to gain placement in advanced courses at area high schools (private and public alike). 


We are able to better support adolescent learning through small class sizes, hands-on, project-based learning, technology, and high expectations.  We additionally offer the structure that adolescents need for success by providing clear expectations and religious guidance through our daily religion classes. 


NCCS Prep School students are highly prepared for their next educational steps. On average, our 7th grade students read beyond a 9th grade level while our 8th grade students read at a college level.
