Meet the Alumnae Association Board

Who We Are

A group of up to 16 alumnae enthusiastic about promoting a positive image of Notre Dame Academy and establishing programs that enhance a close and continued relationship between NDA and its alumnae.

Through their ongoing contribution of skills, time, connections, and financial resources, serve as volunteer leaders who foster the growth of NDA, act as ambassadors, encourage connectivity, and support the school.

We seek to foster a meaningful, lifelong relationship between our alumnae and NDA by serving as a bridge among alumnae, students, and NDA. This includes creating and implementing programs that build pride and loyalty among NDA alumnae, while supporting NDA’s continuous efforts to inspire our young women to share their hearts, minds, and voices.

What We Do

Ensure Notre Dame Academy alumnae come together to foster a vibrant, dynamic community that offers broad opportunities for lifelong engagement for the purposes of social, intellectual, and spiritual well-being. Assist NDA with the planning and execution of alumnae events and fundraising initiatives.  Strengthen our alumnae community by keeping our alumnae connected to NDA, and to each other.
