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.
