Belief Statements

150514_0147 copyNotre Dame School believes that providing an excellent education for young women in the tradition of Anne de Xainctonge helps each student grow intellectually, personally, and spiritually.

We believe that a nurturing environment requires individual attention, generous praise, and gentle correction; such an environment fosters relationships that help young women focus, formulate, and attain their goals.

We believe that emphasizing service as an integral part of Catholic identity helps develop young women who will practice their faith and promote justice, the hallmark of the Church’s social teachings.

We believe that celebrating the ethnic and cultural diversity of our students serves to increase global awareness and builds bridges of understanding in our diverse society.

We believe that by maintaining a school dedicated to the education of young women, we strengthen each student’s positive self image, which encourages our graduates to assume leadership roles in all professional, educational, and social realms – even those not traditionally open to women.

We believe that parents are the first and most important educators of their children and that the school’s function is to assist them in fulfilling their responsibilities in an ever more complex world.
