One of the hallmark Catholic School traditions is that of sharing your time, talent, and treasure within your child’s school community/family. Notre Dame Academy’s vision and future rests in a very active and engaged school community. There are many ways to give of your time, talent, and treasure.

Your Volunteer Committment

The mission of the Home and School Committee (HSC) is to encourage and facilitate the active involvement of parents and educators in the spiritual, social, and academic life of Notre Dame Academy for the purpose of building a strong and vibrant learning community that offers our children the best educational opportunities possible.

All Notre Dame Academy families are members of the Home and School Committee by virtue of their child’s enrollment in our school. As Home and School Committee members, we have an expectation of families to actively participate in and support our school through our Lions’ Pride Volunteer Agreement

As a reminder, your school tuition is a combination of the financial commitment plus volunteer hours.  The volunteer expectation for all families consists of participation in at least three volunteer activities throughout the school year, with at least one of the activities being related to Grand Beginnings or Blizzard Bingo.

VIRTUS Training

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis requires that all individuals who wish to volunteer in our school or attend class parties or field trips must complete VIRTUS training prior to participating in any volunteer activities. This is required of anyone working with children under the age of 18 in a school setting. VIRTUS training is a one-time, three hour training. Participants must register online and attend training before they are allowed to work directly with students. Training sessions are offered throughout the Twin Cities, and you may attend any session that is convenient (you do not have to attend a session at NDA or at your home parish). NDA will be able to certify participation online once the training session has been completed.
