Caritas Academy of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts, an independent K–12 school operated in the Catholic tradition, is expected to open in September on the Blessed Sacrament Church campus in the Town of Tonawanda, said Ann Suchyna, its co-founder.

The private school hopes to have 72 students when it opens at 300 Wendel Ave. in two buildings that the parish school occupied until it was closed by the Buffalo Diocese in 2007.

Open houses are scheduled there from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on May 23 and June 11 for prospective students and their families, Suchyna said. Each open house will include tours of the campus and an opportunity to meet prospective teachers, staff and administration.

Caritas Academy, founded by Suchyna and Heidi Rotella, is not affiliated with the Buffalo Diocese. Suchyna was a co-founder, academic dean and headmaster of Chesterton Academy of Buffalo, an independent high school in West Seneca. Rotella formerly was director of curriculum for Buffalo Diocese schools, director of elementary curriculum at Lancaster Central School District, chief financial officer at Pinnacle Charter School and St. John Vianney School principal.
