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.
