What Are the Uniform Requirements?

Notre Dame students wear uniforms. The uniform includes a plaid skirt, a white or navy monogrammed polo shirt, and a navy monogrammed sweatshirt or fleece sweater. Navy Blue pants are an optional item. Seniors may wear a red sweater or polo, in addition to the white and navy options.

What activities are available after school?

We often say that campus is livelier after the last bell. NDA students take part in a wide variety of activities, including more than 30 co-curricular clubs and programs, 42 athletic teams, and a variety of offerings in drama, music, and art. You can find a full list of activities on our website under “Student Life.”

Does the school provide any transportation options?

Most families choose to carpool to NDA, as they find it is the most flexible and economical means of transportation. Each spring, the Admissions Office works with incoming and current families to coordinate carpools for the following school year. A private bus is available, for a fee, for students from the Milton/Quincy area. Hingham residents are able to take advantage of Hingham Public Schools buses. Learn more here!
