The Notre Dame Academy Advantage
Notre Dame Academy, a Catholic college preparatory school for grades 7-12, sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame, promotes the holistic development and empowerment of young women for leadership and service by providing an exceptional educational experience permeated with Gospel values.
What makes a Notre Dame Academy worth the investment? It’s more than academic achievement. It’s confidence. It’s the confidence that comes from knowing you have the ability to find answers in unfamiliar situations. It’s the confidence that comes from knowing what you believe and value. It’s the confidence that comes from knowing that you are supported by a deeply caring community of teachers, students, and alumnae. Notre Dame Academy graduates have the confidence to boldly use their unique talents to lead and serve the world. NDA graduates:
For over a hundred years, Notre Dame Academy has focused solely on empowering young women through exceptional education. I invite you to come visit to experience for yourself what it feels to be not just educated but empowered.
In Notre Dame,
Mrs. Kim Grilliot
The Sisters of Notre Dame
Notre Dame Academy is one of a global network of schools sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame. The Sisters founded NDA in 1904 to fulfill their Educational Vision:
Impelled by Jesus Christ and his mission and our rich educational heritage, we provide a Catholic-Christian environment of educational excellence for the transformation of individuals and society. We form persons who are skilled and committed to journey together in hope as witnesses and catalysts for the responsible care of all God’s creation and for justice and peace, especially for those on the margins of society.
The Sisters of Notre Dame, founded in Germany in 1805, is an international congregation of women religious, serving the Church in educational, pastoral and social ministries in 17 countries on five continents. Former Notre Dame Academy President Sister Mary Ann Culpert currently serves on the Sisters of Notre Dame Leadership Council in Rome.
