We believe athletics are a unique opportunity for our student athletes to develop spiritually and physically.

For that reason, NDA is proud to be the first all-girls school in Ohio to implement the SportsLeader Catholic virtue-based formation program. SportsLeader is a Catholic virtue-based formation program for coaches of all ages. SportsLeader has a structured, intentional and specific method and curriculum that focuses on four-pillars: Virtue, Mentoring, Ceremony and Catholic Identity.  These are conveyed through activities, traditions and events led by our coaches and Director of Sports Ministry. For more information, please contact NDA’s Director of Sports Ministry, Mrs. Aimee Parks at
