Mission: The ancient Greek philosophers used the word "idea "to denote the basic essence and deepest reality of things and also the means by which human knowledge is possible. The "idea" of Notre Dame Academy is rooted in this underlying connection between the ruling principles of knowledge and spiritual life. Notre Dame Academy's vision is founded on the conviction that each generation of people must think and think through again, from its own distinctive vantage point the ideas that have shaped its own understanding of the world. We strive to be a learning community where parents, faculty, staff, and students share a common and clear understanding of the "ideas" of Notre Dame Academy. We aspire to be a school where adults and maturing adults share a fundamental responsibility to engage the ideas that have shaped the world and our souls.

Notre Dame is no longer a Catholic school. A significant Operations funding source is the Mangano Foundation whose Board consists of Maggie Mangano and her accountant Michael S. Hoover. These parties also sit on the Board of the former Notre Dame--Hoover is the Treasurer of the former NDA as well--and they are wholly controlling Board members by terms of a mortgage placed in 2008. The name of the school is to be changed this year. Student enrollment at present for the upcoming school year is said to be about l/2 capacity.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The teaching staff were dedicated to the students and their instruction.
