Departments & Courses
In order to prepare today's young women to face the professional, social and moral challenges of the 21st century, a well-rounded education must extend beyond classroom walls to the community at large. At the Academy of Notre Dame de Namur, students enjoy the advantage of numerous service, leadership and athletic opportunities while thriving in an academically stimulating environment.
With a curriculum that emphasizes depth as well as breadth, Notre Dame students study six major subjects a day. Students complete a rigorous course of study that exceeds minimum college requirements, with a majority opting to take Advanced Placement (AP) and Honor courses as well as a fourth or fifth year of science, math and foreign language. Annual curriculum reviews ensure that students are receiving the most up-to-date information and allow teachers to modify their course offerings in order to reflect student interests and current educational trends.
