Serving Our Mission- Securing Our Future Program

As a school dedicated to continuous improvement, Notre Dame Academy has developed a new Strategic Plan entitled, Building Leaders Through Transformative Education. A central component of this plan is securing resources that ensure the integrity of our 60-year-old building and continue to enhance our campus facilities to support 21st century learning well into the future. This program will allow NDA to execute a 10-year plan to proactively address ongoing building updates and maintenance needs to ensure safe, clean and contemporary learning environments. 

This building fund honors Sister Mary Paul Ann Hanneken and Sister Mary Rachel Nerone and their legacy that is defined by their ongoing commitment to a clean, safe and attractive campus through NDA’s very successful Work Study Program. This fund will include two key components:

  1. Funding for a multi-year plan to address the facility needs of our aging building and provide for state-of-the-art updates
  2. A permanent Endowment that funds urgent, planned, and emergency needs annually, but lives into perpetuity

The goal of the Sister Mary Paul Ann Hanneken and Sister Mary Rachel Nerone Building Fund is $5 million and will address the following:

  • Learning environments: technology, lighting, temperature control, furniture
  • Safety and security: cameras, door locks, fire alarm system
  • Facility Structure and Mechanicals: HVAC, roofs
  • Athletic facility upgrades: field lights, restrooms, storage
  • Building Endowment in perpetuity
