Meet Our Principal

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 still attend St. Anthony's R.C. Church with my 92-year-old mother 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
