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 advantages 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. The Academy offers a rigorous course of study that exceeds the minimum requirements for most colleges, with most students opting to take advanced placement (AP) and honors courses and a fourth or fifth year of science, math, and world language. Annual curriculum reviews ensure that students receive the most up-to-date information and allow teachers to modify their course offerings in order to reflect student interests and current educational trends.
