I totally love this school. I am a freshman and I feel like I have been going here for years already. It just feels like home. Everyone is so nice and the teachers are funny and helpful. If you are a student looking to go to school and you are worried about not seeing any boys, my advice is that its OK! Its easier to focus this way plus you can still see them at the spring production practices or football games or even some dances (especially formal). I hope you make the right decision. Good luck!! :]
I love NDA! It's an amazing school and my home away form home. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. Yes, the classes are challenging, but it's worth it and I would highly recommend drama for your Visual Performing Arts Credit. It will be the best choice you will ever make.
This school rocks you guyz!!! I put a totally awesome rating just because everyone else put a radical rating!!!
My daughter is in her junior year and continues to be a good student overall. Notre Dame Academy is an excellent school. If you are looking for an all girls school, this is the school that you want your daughter to go. I made the right decision for her, this school is preparing her for her college.
Notre Dame Academy prepared me for success. After my four years at NDA, I went to college, where I realized I knew a lot more than most people in my classes! One of my favorite parts of NDA was the all-girls classes. We were taught to strive toward success...and to not worry about what other people thought. During my freshman year of college, I saw that young women from other "college prep" schools were not as vocal as I was...and it took a conversation with another girl who had graduated from NDA to help me see that NDA taught me to believe in ME! Thanks NDA for preparing me for college, law school, grad school and life!!
I feel like this was my only ever, true home away from home. The sense of community is magnificent. And the administration is just so efficient, every step of the way, I truly admire this fine institution. However, the high cost of such quality meant I could only afford to attend for one school year. ='(
My daughter currently attends NDA and I must say that I am extremely happy! As a former alumni I had mixed feelings as I had hesitations as the campus was small and they had no fields, etc. Well that stopped quickly as one realizes that it is not the physical school that makes the difference, but the administration and people that really make the school. The soccer team won the CIF finals, the academics are high, and the warm friendly administration and girls make this the NDA family I have always known and loved! They do not talk about the religious avenues, these girls really act on it as well so...Thank you NDA!
My daughter found a nurturing environment, amazing Drama experiences, terrific curriculum, and more at NDA. She's succeeding at college now, based on her excellent academic background. Teachers are caring, school is well-run. We love NDA.
Notre Dame Academy is a fantastic High school. The girls are really friendly, the teacher's are really devoted, and the rest of the staff are great also. I am currently enrolled there and have to say I'm having a very enjoyable school year there.
Love this school! My eldest daughter graduated in 2006 and my other two girls are currently attending. The teachers are exceptional, selfless, and are completely devoted to the children even during off hours. There is a sense that every individual's academic, physical, and spiritual success is of the utmost importance to this admistration. I have recommended this school to those who are up for the academic challenge and do not mind the commute. They have the CARE Program (carpooling arrangements) as well as a bus pick/up drop off at two secure locations. My daughter now drives to school, but we did the ride sharing for the earlier years. As far as my girls, they all said it was a little adjustment without boys, but they would never have wanted to go anywhere else. I will miss them when my last daughter graduates, and hope to send my granddaughters there someday!
I know many young women who've attended NDA, and they've had nothing but pleasant things to say about their experiences there. It really is a great place to send your daughter, The faculty is genuinely interested in helping the students grow not only socially and academically, but spiritually as well. And the leadership is second to none!
My daughter is flourishing at NDA. She is in a well rounded, academically and spritually focused environment with students of like values. I love this school and feel blessed and honored that my daughter attends.
My daughter had a wonderful experience at NDA. It was a very nuturing place. The support system at the school (students, counselors, teachers, administration) was outstanding. We will miss it.
Notre Dame Academy is filled with so many academic and extracurricular activities. During my four years, I found the teachers to be very supportive and reliable whenever I needed individual attention. The faculty and staff do their best to make the students feel welcome as long as the student is making the effort to accept the help given. I recommend the school to any girl who is looking to have a great education.
