"Notre Dame has very helpful teachers who trust us. I love feeling independent on campus and have made great friends. I am so grateful to Notre Dame for the best education ever!”

Deborah Gleeson, AP Physics Teacher, Robotics Coach
"In a continually changing world, we introduce students to new areas of study such as computer programming, robotics, engineering design along with research opportunities. The Notre Dame Fund is essential in providing  teacher professional development and materials needed for these programs which are opening up new worlds for our students."

Andrew Foreman, Math Department Chair, Coding Club Moderator
“Notre Dame’s mission, to inspire, enable, and empower young women is at the forefront of what we do. Teaching students what they need to know for life, preparing young women with 21st century skills of collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking, requires an ongoing evolution of pedagogies. The Notre Dame Fund is an integral component in garnering these resources and training for all members of the community.”
