Meet Our Principal

Andrew Ludwig

Andrew Ludwig

I attended and graduated from Fredonia Central Schools. I also attended SUNY Fredonia, where I majored in mathematics. In 1985 I was hired to teach math at the Fredonia Middle School. As a teacher, I coached modified wrestling for almost 20 years, and I was the advisor for many, many clubs and activities. I loved every minute of my teaching career but new challenges were laying in wait for me.


After attending St. Bonaventure University and SUNY Fredonia, I was awarded a School District Leader Certificate and was named Fredonia Middle School principal shortly thereafter. After retiring from my principalship there, I taught mathematics part-time at Jamestown Community College.


I regularly attend St. Anthony's R.C. Church in Fredonia every Sunday, and I'm proud to call Chautauqua County home. 


In the fall of 2018, I was hired as the interim principal at NCCS, and I accepted the position of permanent principal at the beginning of 2019. I have over three decades of experience as an advocate for children and students of all ages. Being the principal at NCCS is something that I take very seriously. I love meeting new families and getting to know members of our ever-growing NCCS family. I will continue to work hard and to take very good care of our NCCS children.


I am very excited for our future and look forward to working with you.


With NCCS Pride,


Mr. Andrew Ludwig, Principal

Meet Our Canonical Administrator


Father Bob Owczarczak

My name is Father Robert Owczarczak. You can call me Fr. Bob. A little background: I am one of nine children and lived in the small town of Marilla, N.Y.  I attended: St. Vincent DePaul grammar school, St. Mary’s High School, Canisius College, and I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Buffalo. After spending 5 years in the counseling field, I attended Christ the King Seminary for my Masters in Divinity. I am a huge Bills fan, love to play a variety of sports, and I get my energy from being around people.

As a priest, I really stress the importance of God’s love and mercy so I will be pushing for a deeper understanding of confession and the Eucharist. I am a very casual guy, so if you come by the office I may be in a T-shirt and shorts.  (I do dress up for the important events).

I am excited to be working with everyone at NCCS and helping our children develop a deeper connection with God. 

With NCCS Pride,

Father Bob Owczarczak, Canonical Administrator
