"Leadership is knowing who you are, what you believe, and being able to express your beliefs effectively to influence others. It isn’t reserved for those in formal roles, such as team captain or class president, but is a way of life that girls can live every day. Our goal is to equip every student with the courage, skills, and community to exercise the power of her voice and carry on the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame."

~ President Annemarie Lynch Kenneally '80 P'13 '15




Why NDA?

We’ve been preparing young women to lead for nearly 200 years. Join the next generation of women leaders.

"I was shy student and nervous to talk in class when I started at NDA in 7th grade. Since then, I've become more confident and invested in my education. I am making the most out of my experience. Smaller classes allows me to form close relationships and feel more comfortable voicing my opinion. Having classmates who all work hard motivates me to become the best version of myself."

"There is something different about being in a classroom with students who are passionate about learning and teachers who feed off of that passion and ambition and do everything they can to make your education the best it can be. There is a special bond NDA girls share that some describe as sisterhood but it's almost more than that... you will make connections with students and teachers that last a lifetime!"

"I've had so many opportunities that I never would have imagined in a coed environment. I have really enjoyed the classroom experience, where I have been challenged by teachers and peers to become the best version of myself. I know my teachers really care about me and I have made amazing friends who are so supportive. NDA has been the best decision I've ever made for my personal growth."

"NDA has pushed me to be a strong and independent young woman who is not afraid to use her voice to be a force for change. When I began at NDA in seventh grade, I was shy. Now, I am not afraid to speak up for what I believe in. This would not have been possible without the support of my teachers who truly want what's best for me. NDA gives you all the necessary tools to succeed in and beyond high school."

"At some point every day, I find myself marveling at how strong the sense of community is here. Sisterhood is promised coming in – a promise I am happy to confirm is beyond true. I’ve met so many of my favorite people at NDA. The teachers are so incredibly invested in the success of their students, not just academically, but as people."

"I could not have asked for a more demanding, supportive, or dedicated community. The teachers at NDA are some of the best I have ever had. They are passionate about what they teach and they really express all their talents in each lesson. NDA encourages you to try new things and get out of your comfort zone. I already feel as if I am coming out of my shell and I want others to have this same opportunity."
