Our team of dedicated teachers offers a Christ–centered, innovative, child–focused education that is authentic, relevant, taught with kindness and inclusiveness, with a commitment to the whole child — always remaining Christ–centered, focused on academic excellence, spiritual integrity and Catholic social responsibility.

Our Philosophy

We have a vested interest in each student and we are passionate about their future. As an unbiased, PreK – 8th grade, Catholic school, Notre Dame Academy holds a unique position that enables us to educate and bring unity to a diverse group of students for the good of all. We believe that an innovative, faith-based education provides spiritual guidance and academic opportunity for all students far into the future.

“Both of my girls have attended this school since preschool. If you ever have the opportunity to support Catholic Schools for your children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren, I highly recommend it. This has been the best opportunity for their self esteem, faith, community and personal well being.”
