An integral part of the Notre Dame Academy
educational experience is growth in one's relationship with God. The legacy that Saint Julie Billiart and
Francoise Blin de Bourdon, co-founders of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur,
shared with the church is that our God is a good
qu'il est bon le bon Dieu!
(How good is the good God!) was Julie's frequent
exclamation in joy and difficulty.
It is our hope and our aim that all members of the NDA
community, especially our students, grow in an understanding that they are
created in the image of God and will reflect God's goodness in all that they
do. We teach a life skill of theological
reflection which means that our students examine their choices and decisions in
the light of scripture, the teachings of the Catholic church, and the needs of
the world community.
