The Notre Dame Academy Advantage
Notre Dame Academy, a Catholic college preparatory school for young women, educates in the tradition, vision and principles of the Sisters of Notre Dame. We empower students to be intellectually curious, passionately faith-filled, and socially responsible servant leaders.
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:
- Think holistically
- Live Gospel values
- Support each other
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.
