Our Private School Status

Notre Dame Academy is a Private Roman Catholic Elementary School working “under the umbrella” of the Diocese of San Diego. It is not a Diocesan School nor is it operated by the Diocese.  An Agreement was signed by Robert H. Brom, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego, granting The Institute of the Union-Chretienne de Saint Chaumond the rights to open Notre Dame Academy as a private Roman Catholic school.  The Institute of the Union-Chretienne de Saint Chaumond has the ability to offer curriculum integrated with the traditions and beliefs of the Roman Catholic doctrine. The Sisters of Union-Chretienne de Saint Chaumond is a traditional order and has the ability to offer the students a solid and traditional Catholic education.
