2018-2019 iPad Purchasing Information

The 2018-19 school year will mark Notre Dame Academy's seventh full year of the 1:1 iPad Initiative. This program has allowed NDA to stay current with educational innovations that promote student achievement and success. We believe this initiative fully supports our mission to educate young women to make a difference in our world. The iPad is used in a variety of ways that fully engage our students in the learning process. Parents are urged to check this site often for information regarding the 1:1 iPad Initiative. We look forward to sharing this remarkable innovation with you and your daughters.
