Inspiring hearts, minds, and voices.

Notre Dame Academy (NDA), an independent Catholic school sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, prepares young women in middle school and high school to become critical thinkers, lifelong learners, and open-minded leaders. As the first all-girls day school in Massachusetts, NDA provides educational experiences that recognize and cultivate students’ distinctive talents and skills. NDA guides each student in her educational journey, providing a holistic education grounded in academic excellence that includes small sizes and a dynamic curriculum.

Whether competing on one of our 45 athletic teams or participating in one of 30+ co-curricular organizations and service opportunities, NDA encourages girls to take risks and pursue new opportunities in a nurturing environment. Leadership programming and early college counseling prepare young women for a promising future. Graduates leave NDA with the power of an alumnae network 170 years strong behind them.
