Notre Dame Academy Elementary School

  • Notre Dame Academy was founded by smart, independent, powerful women, the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame (CNDs).
  • These women refused to believe the stereotypes about what girls could or should learn.
  • From the beginning, the curriculum at NDA provided a complete academic program, including "male" subjects like physics and geometry, as well as cultivating girls physical and athletic abilities.
  • The students at NDA were prepared for college when that was still a radical idea as the norm for young women.
  • The Sisters didn't "finish" girls; they empowered girls. Notre Dame Academy enabled students to identify and unfold their boundless potential and gifts, and positioned them as future history-makers and leaders.
