From Academy of Notre Dame de Namur

Since 1856, Notre Dame's commitment to teaching young women “what they need to know for life” has remained unchanged. Graduates are confident women with the skills to succeed in the nation’s most competitive colleges and prepared to lead in a global society.

Notre Dame is a community guided by the faith tradition of the Catholic Church, the service of the Sisters of Notre Dame, and the Academy’s Honor Code.

All students receive an Apple MacBook Air. With a successful online education protocol, the Academy is ready to transition seamlessly to virtual learning.

The Center for Global Leadership links students to schools around the world. A progressive study of World Languages begins in grade six and continues through AP.

Upper school students deepen their academic experience as a STEM, Global, or Arts Scholar.

Dance, fine and performing arts, music, athletics, campus ministry, and clubs give every student the opportunity to explore her unique gifts.
