Dear Friends of Cardinal O’Hara High School,

Many of you may be concerned after seeing news reports regarding the closing of Niagara Catholic High School and hearing that O’Hara’s allocation from the Diocese of Buffalo has also been discontinued.

The truth is that our Diocesan funding has been shrinking for some time and we have been preparing for this day by reducing our reliance on those funds in a number of ways.  We have been systematically growing our annual giving, with special thanks to our alumni who have enthusiastically stepped up to increase their support and keep our school strong.         

Not only is Cardinal O’Hara NOT closing, but we are happy to say that our school is stronger than ever.  Our enrollment continues to steadily increase each year, with our incoming freshman class 25% larger than the graduating Class of 2018.

Cardinal O’Hara is also opening our doors and our hearts to the students who are being displaced from Niagara Catholic.  We know how traumatic this change will be and hope to be able to allow these young men and women to continue their co-educational Catholic secondary education.

In keeping with our mission, in the spirit of St. Francis, Cardinal O’Hara is committed to providing a holistic Catholic-Christian environment that addresses the uniqueness of the individual in a community of learners for many years to come.
