Academy of Notre Dame - Upper School Reviews

Hi, my name is Lana and I am currently a junior at the Academy of Notre Dame. Ever since I toured NDA, I knew that it was the school for me! There is a true sense of sisterhood among the girls here. Our classes are small and the teachers are inspirational and most of all, patient :-). They always make time for us! The Academy encourages us to take on leadership roles and there are opportunities to start our own clubs. The education is great and I am looking forward to getting into my top college pick (as others have done before me)...and, more importantly, being able to succeed once I get there.

As a parent of two high school students at the Academy I can say that the quality of the academic programs are exceptional. I know both my girls will be fully prepared for college. The faculty is always helpful and willing to provide the best for the students. There are many extracurricular activities and sports that are offered as well. Both my girls love NDA and I'm sure will continue their lifelong friendships they've made at NDA even after graduation!
As parents when looking for a place to send our daughter to high school, it was very simple. Academy of Notre Dame checked all of our boxes. They have great academics, small class sizes, and some of the best teachers in the area. They really care about preparing the girls for college, and beyond. The facilities are great, along with the sports programs. The extracurricular activities are also fantastic, especially the drama guild which she is active member.
