Head of School Search

At the end of the 2020-2021 school year, Dr. Judith Dwyer will conclude her tenure as the Academy of Notre Dame de Namur's Head of School. During her time at the Academy, Dr. Dwyer has exemplified the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur by emphasizing the importance of local and global service and leadership. Her legacy and innovation will continue to inspire the young women of Notre Dame for generations to come. 

To support the search effort, the Academy's Board of Trustees has created a Head of School Search Committee, which includes current and past parents, alumnae, faculty and staff members.
