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.

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.

College Counseling


In addition to a dedicated guidance counselor, each of our juniors is assigned to one of our two dedicated college counselors who walk each young woman through the process from beginning to end - from identifying colleges aligning with passions and aspirations to application to interview to acceptance. We call this our “wrap-around” college counseling service. Our team tailors our service to each girl and we commit ourselves to their success. 


All Girls' Advantage

As the first all-girls' day school in Massachusetts, we have been educating girls for lives of exceptional leadership and service for nearly 200 years.
