Welcome to Notre Dame Academy

A Tradition of Excellence
Welcome to your regional PK-8 Catholic school supporting the western suburbs of Minneapolis, MN. Notre Dame Academy continues an outstanding legacy of education and faith formation for over half a century in our community.

Notre Dame Academy is supported by both Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, Minnetonka and St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church in Hopkins, MN (formerly St. John's and St. Joseph's) who together have sponsored and supported a Catholic school program for over 50 years.

Though a new school was formed in 2013, one thing will never change - high academic standards and achievements coupled with the dedication of parents, students, educators, pastors and the Catholic community will continue to provide a vibrant model of the living Gospel in action.  

Mission Statement

Notre Dame Academy is a Pre K - 8th grade regional Catholic school serving families in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, MN, which fosters an education rooted in Catholic tradition. As a community of educators, staff, parents and parishioners, we challenge our students through academic excellence, spiritual formation, social development and moral growth.
