    The academic rigor there is pretty good compared to other schools in the area. Classes are changing, and a relatively wide range of advanced classes are held or such a small school. The only thing to watch out for is bad teachers. NDA has a bad habit of hiring terrible teachers, and sometimes students have no choice but to take their classes. Sports exist, but are not extremely competitive (with the exception of volleyball). Aside from the annual spring musical, there are no programs for students to further any musical interests. If you want to pursue music, don’t go to NDA. Aside from those though, NDA has some pretty competitive unorthodox extracurriculars like robotics, a nationally-ranked rocketry team, and Academic Decathlon.

    The sisterhood at NDA is like no other. Everyone is completely supportive of one another, and this kind of atmosphere breeds love through everyone. The academics are great, and some teams, like volleyball, are very competitive and so fun to watch!
    I absolutely love Notre Dame Academy! Everyone is so kind and is always with such a positive attitude. Notre Dame Academy has teachers that are absolutely amazing and you are able to receive high quality one-to-one attention. My experience has truly impacted me and shaped me into the young woman I am today and has definitely taught me to always help others and try new things. Although I was a very timid and shy student at first, I was definitely able to get out of my comfort zone and try new things such as sports and new clubs that I never thought I would join. I want to use everything I have been taught to go out there and have the opportunity to make a difference in this world as a young woman and definitely make a difference in someone else’s life.
