Herkimer is lucky enough to have its own elementary school and high school. Herkimer Elementary School consists of grades Pre-K to 6. Herkimer High School houses grades 7-12. Of course, the higher grades in each school building are separated from the lower grades. The high school has had its share of Section III championship teams, and many of Herkimer's graduates have gone on to achieve great things. Other educational institutions include St. Francis de Sales Regional Catholic Elementary School, Herkimer BOCES and Herkimer County Community College, ranked one of the top 100 community colleges in the nation by CNNMoney. Herkimer College is also ranked 2nd Best Community College in New York State by Schools.com. Other colleges, such as SUNY Polytechnic Institute, Utica College, Mohawk Valley Community College, Pratt Institute, and Utica School of Commerce are only a stone's throw away in nearby Utica and Marcy. The Herkimer public library is part of the Mid-York Library System.
