Why An All Girls School?

From its inception in 1951, Notre Dame Academy has been a school where each young woman is valued for who she is and for who she has the potential to become. Our mission has always been to nurture each student's strengths and talents while helping her to build confidence, healthy values, and a sense of personal and social responsibility.
