Notre Dame Academy High School

  • For more than a century Notre Dame Academy has provided a focused educational environment, challenging girls and young women to learn to their full capacities - an achievement greater than their times and their societies sometimes thought possible.
  • Notre Dame Academy was founded in 1903 by smart, independent, powerful women, the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame (CNDs).
  • These women refused to accept the stereotypes about what girls could or should learn.
  • Mother St. Patricia with Class 1961 NDA has always provided a complete academic program, including physics and geometry; and has sought to cultivate girls' physical and athletic abilities.
  • NDA students were prepared for college at a time when that was still a radical idea as the norm for young women.
