Our Department


The Religion Department of Notre Dame Academy assists young women in the development of their faith and in forming small Christian communities beginning in their freshman year. Students are encouraged to view Faith as a gift from God that must be nourished and lived out according to the Gospel values inherent in the Catholic Tradition.

Not only are students taught Catholic doctrine and the eternal truth found in Sacred Scripture and Tradition, but also they are encouraged to use critical thinking skills regarding their spiritual development and the formation of a moral conscience. A positive relationship with God and with others is accomplished through opportunities for involvement in their school, community and the world, through service opportunities for those in need, provided by Campus Ministry.
