Notre Dame Academy is a school that is rooted in traditions. Our students, parents, teachers, staff, and Sisters are all familiar with our slogan, “One Family, Always United”. Annual traditions on campus are a wonderful way for all of the NDA community members to come together, celebrate as a family, and bond.

While some of the traditions that we celebrate have been passed down in the NDA family for several years, others are more recently established for our students to enjoy. Here are a few of Notre Dame Academy’s unforgettable traditions:
