When you envision your daughter’s success, what do you dream of? Parents like you bring their daughters to Notre Dame Academy because they recognized that their daughter’s happiness is a rich mix of elements. It’s being challenged to use her individual talents to the best of her ability. It’s nurturing success skills that will serve her long after the facts she learns in class are forgotten. It’s being inspired to use her gifts to serve others. It’s connecting with a lifetime of encouragement from a “Plaid Sisterhood” of classmates and alumnae.

We invite your daughter to come experience all these at Notre Dame Academy by being an Eagle for a Day!

We strive to form women 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. (From The Educational Vision of the Sisters of Notre Dame)

The intent of this statement is to affirm our commitment as a Catholic school to inclusivity. We welcome all into this Gospel community including but not limited to people of all colors, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, economic classes and nationalities.

The Sisters of Notre Dame

The Sisters of Notre Dame

Hilligonde Wolbring founded the Sisters of Notre Dame of Coesfeld, Germany in 1850.  Hilligonde lovingly embraced all of her students, but especially those who were poor or disadvantaged.  She and her companion teacher, Elisabeth Kühling, experienced God’s goodness and provident care, and were impelled to pass it on to others. Under the guidance of the Sisters of Notre Dame of Amersfoort in the Netherlands, they established a new religious family based on the spiritual heritage of St. Julie Billiart, foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. SND is now an international congregation of women religious, serving the Church in educational, pastoral and social ministries in 17 countries on five continents, including Notre Dame Academy since founding it in 1904.
